CAR-ACF Motor Certification (June 6-7, 2014)
A motor testing session was held at the Cesaroni Technology Incorporated facility in Gormley, Ontario on June 6-7th, 2014.
In total, 18 motors were certified with 103 firings over two days. The total fired impulse was 105,842 N-sec (just into the ‘Q’ range). This session sees the arrival of a new slow burning propellant, the Mellow. Seven motors use the new propellant and will be found in 29mm, 38mm, 54mm and 75mm. Seven of the motors used White propellant (including 1 Moonburner), the others are:
· Skidmark-Longburn · Blue Streak
· Classic · White Thunder
During this session a boat tail threaded retaining ring was certified on the Pro75 hardware. The test was performed on a Pro75-2G-Vmax.
The motors ranged from a new Pro24-2G (Blue Streak, 50 N-s) up to a Pro98-6GXL (White Moonburner 16,803 N-s).
While these motors were certified in Canada, a reciprocal agreement between the Canadian Association of Rocketry, the Tripoli Rocketry Association and the National Association of Rocketry means they may be flown in many jurisdictions.
I am very pleased to announce the certification of these eighteen ( 18 ) new reloads from Cesaroni Technology, Inc. Individual certification letters follow for each motor. These letters and the accompanying thrust curves will be available on the official CAR-ACF website soon.
