New Motors Certified

Post by Thomas Raithby » Fri May 15, 2009 8:04 am

I am very pleased to announce the certification of 52 new reloads from Cesaroni Technology, Inc.

A motor testing session was held at the Cesaroni Technology Incorporated facility in Gormley, Ontario during the dates of April 30th to May 1st, 2009. A total of 208 motors were fired in hardware ranging from the new 29mm diameter Pro29, up to the 162mm diameter Pro150. Impulses ranged from F to O and reloads were certified for use in hardware from CTI, AMW/ProX and Aerotech.

Ten propellants were fired, including Classic (CL), Smoky Sam (SS), Vmax (VM), White Thunder (WT), Blue Streak (BS), Skidmark (SK), Red Lightning (RL), Blue Baboon (BB), Wild Wolf (WW), and a new release – Imax (IM).

An interesting development during this round of testing was submission of two very similar reloads. Two versions of the Pro29-3G Blue Streak reloads were certified. The first was certified as an H133 (see p12) and the second as a G118 (see p21). The H- and G variants of this motor use different nozzles, but are otherwise the same components.

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. With that in mind, several of these motors include notes that indicate they are considered high power under NFPA 1125.

Attached are the certification letters for these new motors. These letters and the accompanying thrust curves will be available on the official CAR website soon.

I wish the best of success to Cesaroni Technology as they continue to expand their selection of rocket motors.
