Certification of AeroTech 'G'-Power Redline Reload Kits

Certification of AeroTech 'G'-Power Redline Reload Kits December 30, 2004 Web posted at: 2:52 PM EST
Cedar City, UT (ROL Newswire) -- The AeroTech division of RCS Rocket
Motor Components (RCS), Inc. is pleased to announce the certification of two new Reloadable Motor System (RMS) reload kits by the Tripoli Motor Testing (TMT) committee. These reloads are the 29mm G77R and the 38mm G67R, and are the first Redline reload kits released by AeroTech in the 'G'-power class.
The G77R uses two standard Redline grains from the 29mm high power RMS line, and the G67R uses a single standard Redline 38mm RMS grain. Both reload kits are shipped with a FirstFire two-lead igniter, and retail for $13.95 each.
The two 'G' reloads fit new RMS casings that were introduced earlier this year by AeroTech and Dr. Rocket/Reloadable Systems. These cases are compatible with existing 29 & 38mm high power closures. The G77R is NOT compatible with the 29/40-120 model rocket RMS hardware.
The G77R and G67R reloads qualify as "model rocket motors" and no user certification is required, though purchasers must be 18 years of age or older in compliance with Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) regulations.
The 29mm G77R can be shipped via U.S. Postal Service Parcel Post with no hazmat fee, due to the fact that the individual propellant grains weigh less than 30 grams each. Detailed specifications for both reload kits can be found on the AeroTech website at http://www.aerotech-rocketry.com .

Will these get sent to NAR S&T so they can be used in NAR competition like Scale ?

Well, as I understand it, if Aerotech doesn't do it themselves then an individual member or other entity could apply for a certification under NAR rules.
