Abstract:

The patent relates to a combustion chamber pressure measuring apparatus comprising a diaphragm and pressure bulkhead assembly, pressure transmitting fluid, pressure transducer, and a telemetry section for an end burning grain solid propellant rocket. This apparatus eliminates the need for external attachments to the rocket or modifications to the propellant grain and enables fail-safe testing of previously manufactured rockets under actual flight conditions.
