Abstract : This report contains propellant test results from cartons of TP-H1043 propellant representing selected batches used in the aft closure of First Stage Minuteman Motors. Data from TP-H1043 propellant obtained from the aft closures of the LGM-30A, B, F, and G Motors are reported in regression analyses for the second time and the first time using the G085 computer system. Testing was accomplished in accordance with MMEMP Project 73NE413. An analysis of all parameters indicate that no significant degradation is anticipated for at least two years past the oldest data point. Each point on the regression plot represents all samples at that particular age. The number of samples at each point is indicated on the sample size summary sheet on the page accompanying each regression plot. The data range at any age can be found by suitable inquiry of the G085 system. (Author)
