Abstract:

To support the U.S. Department of Defense DOD Space Program, and to ensure access to space through the continued use of Titan solid propellant rocket motors, the U.S. Air Force USAF proposes to test fire Titan rocket motors at Test Stand IC, located at the Rocket Propulsion Laboratory RPL, Edwards Air Force Base AFB, California, during the period of February to December 1987. The proposed action calls for the renovation of an existing rocket motor test stand Test Stand IC located on Leuhman Ridge at RPL to conduct the static test firings. Test Stand IC was used to test F-1 liquid rocket engines until the early 1970s. Test stand renovation includes refurbishment and changes in structural, mechanical, and electrical systems, addition of a heat shield to protect the steel deflector plate, water collection basin improvements, and addition of instrumentation, control, and monitoring equipment.
