Abstract : Analysis and design effort on the Advanced Maneuvering Propulsion System (AMPS) progressed satisfactorily during the sixth quarterly period. Engine critical component demonstration testing continued on the main thrust chamber segment hardware. A total of 19 firing tests were conducted on the 30-degree, hydrogen-cooled, channel-wall segments. Testing was initiated on the main fluorine pump bearings and seals. The basic analysis and design of the propellant feed system was completed by both General Dynamics/Convair and Lockheed Missiles and Space Company. (Author)
