A motor similar in size to the Peacekeeper missile stage 1 motor. It fills the gap between Castor 4A and the large segmented motors. Unit cost would be about $3.5 million for volume production, rising to $7.5 million for one annually. Further applications include using it as a strap-on for launchers, such as Delta. It can be used in a stage 1 or 2 strap-on since the forward and aft ends can take tension and compression forces. A (5.5 degree thrust vector control is provided by a movable nozzle. The grain can be changed (tailored) by adding aft slots to reduce thrust during maximum-q, and by adding forward slots for high initial thrust.. First Flight. November 1994.
