Apollo experience report: Launch escape propulsion subsystem
Townsend, N. A.
NASA Center for AeroSpace Information (CASI)
NASA-TN-D-7083; MSC-S-343 , 19730301; Mar 1, 1973
The Apollo launch escape propulsion subsystem contained three solid
rocket motors. The general design, development, and qualification of
the solid-propellant pitch-control, tower-jettison, and launch-escape
motors of the Apollo launch escape propulsion subsystem were completed
during years 1961 to 1966. The launch escape system components are
described in general terms, and the sequence of events through the
ground-based test programs and flight-test programs is discussed. The
initial ground rules established for this system were that it should
use existing technology and designs as much as possible. The
practicality of this decision is proved by the minimum number of
problems that were encountered during the development and
qualification program.

Thanks for the links Rusty.
Note though folks, that some of these PDF's are in excess of 200MB... even with a cable modem it's taking 20-30 mins for the big ones. Best to use the right mouse and "save target as...", otherwise your browser will be busy for awhile and it will appear to have locked up.
