Abstract:

This report contains data and test results from the third time testing of the Minuteman Stage I Reliability Improvement Program RIP Surveillance. Thiokol see TWR-7300 had tested and reported on this program for eight years up through 30 June 1973. The responsibility was then turned over to the Propellant Laboratory MANCP at OO-ALC. In the previous report, data was compared with Thiokol data and was presented in the same format as in Thiokols final report. In this report, Thiokols data with the data from three years of testing in MANCPs laboratory were combined and regression analysis was made by MANCPs statistical group. the purpose of testing is to provide early warning if any serious degradation trends occur in the components being evaluated.
