Abstract:

This report contains propellant test results from cartons of TP-H1011 bulk propellant representing LGM-30 A and B First Stage Minuteman Motors. This report is the eleventh time that a statistical approach has been used to analyze First Stage bulk carton propellant. Testing was accomplished in accordance with MMEMP Project M72632-5MP116P. The purpose of testing was to determine and provide early warning of any serious degradation trends occurring in the propellant for service life predictions. An analysis of all parameters indicates that no potential problems are expected in the propellant for at least two years past the oldest data point. Data stored in the GO85 System were plotted utilizing the IBM 360-65 Computer and CAL-COMP Plotter. The data range at any age can be found by suitable inquiry of the GO 85 System. Each point on the regression plot represents the mean of all samples at that particular age. The number of specimens at each point is indicated on the sample size summary sheet accompanying each regression plot or group of regression plots. Author
