NASA and ATK Completes Installation of Solid Rocket Motor for Ground Test

NASA and ATK have completed installing the first Space Launch System booster qualification motor, QM-1, in a specialized test stand in Utah. The solid rocket motor ever built for flight, QM-1 is now being prepared for its static-fire test, which is scheduled for March 11. For this test, QM-1 is being conditioned to 90 degrees to test its higher temperature capabilities against the required temperature range. Lying horizontally in the test stand, the motor is 154 feet in length and 12 feet in diameter. When fired, QM-1 will produce 3.6 million pounds of maximum thrust. The five-segment rocket motor in conjunction with four RS-25 engines will propel NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) off the launch pad. The SLS, along with NASA's Orion spacecraft, provides a flexible deep space exploration platform to take humans and cargo to multiple destinations across solar system. The first test flight of SLS, called Exploration Mission-1 (EM-1), is just a few years away. EM-1 will use two of ATK's five-segment solid rocket motors. The SLS five-segment motor is based on the design heritage of the flight-proven solid rocket boosters used on the Space Shuttle Program, and was upgraded using new technologies and updated materials.
