AeroTech Announces Certification of Three New Reload Kits June 22, 2004 Web posted at: 5:40 PM EDT
(ROL Newswire) -- The AeroTech division of RCS Rocket Motor Components (RCS), Inc. is pleased to announce the certification of three new Reloadable Motor System (RMS) reload kits by the Tripoli Motor Testing (TMT) committee. These reloads are the 29mm G79W, 38mm G61W and the 38mm I600R.
Technical specifications may be found on the AeroTech website at
The G79W uses two standard grains from the 29mm high power RMS line, and the G61W uses a single standard 38mm RMS grain. The I600R uses standard length 38mm Redline grains that have been modified to reduce the motor output to just under 640 N-sec. The I600R was specifically designed for use in this year's LDRS 'I-Lite' Bowling Ball loft competition and produces an initial thrust of over 180 pounds with a duration of just under 1.1 seconds.
The two 'G' reloads fit new RMS casings that are being introduced simultaneously by AeroTech and Dr. Rocket/Reloadable Systems. These cases are compatible with existing 29 & 38mm high power closures. The G79W is NOT compatible with the 29/40-120 model rocket RMS hardware. The I600R fits existing 38/720 motor hardware.
The three new reloads are being released in conjunction with LDRS-23, the annual high power rocket launch sponsored by the Tripoli Rocketry Association. Limited quantities of G61W and G79W reloads and 29/120 and38/120 RMS cases will be available from AeroTech dealers attending the launch. Initial sale of the I600R reloads will be restricted to participants in the I-Lite Bowling Ball Loft competition.
The G79W and G61W 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. A Level 1 Tripoli or NAR certification is required for purchase of the I600R reload.
