Abstract : The primary objective of this program is the development and demonstration static test firing of an omniaxial flexible seal movable nozzle using a monolithic steel case, one million pound thrust class, 156 in. diameter motor, designated 156-9, as the test vehicle. The flexible seal movable nozzle will consist of a fixed housing attached to the motor case and a movable housing interconnected by means of a flexible seal. (Author)
