Abstract : This report contains propellant test results from cartons of TP-H1011 bulk propellant reprresenting LGM-30 F and G First Stage Minuteman Motors. This report uses a statistical approach to analyze the bulk carton propellant data. Testing was accomplished in accordance with MMEMP Project M62413M-4MP068P. The data from this test period are combined with data from previous testing and entered into the G085 computer for storage, analysis, and regression analysis. From the statistical analysis of all data tested to date (9 1/2 years for f and G), significant degradation of the propellant does not appear likely for at least two years past the oldest data point. Each point on the regression plot represents the mean of 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)
