5” - 8” Solid Rocket Motor Test Cell
Designed for motors generating up to 3000 lbf of thrust
Capability Description: The tactical rocket motor test cell was designed for motors generating up to 3000 lbf of thrust, and accommodates diameters from 5” to 8”. A calibrated thrust measurement system (TMS), combined with transient pressure data, provides specific impulse evaluation.
- Measures thrust up to 3000 lbf
- Adaptable for motors between 5” and 8” in diameter
Benefit to Warfighter/Customer:
Enables ground-based test demonstrations of solid rocket motors ranging from 5” – 8” in diameter. These tests aid in optimizing SRM performance by guiding hardware design and propellant formulation for the benefit of both military and commercial customers.
