FW-5
In 1970 CSD was awarded the contract to build the apogee kick motor for Canada's Anik communications satellite. The motor had a 28.6-in diameter filament wound fiberglass-epoxy case, a length of 44-in and contained propellant loads from 518 to 598-lb, depending on the mission. Although the case and nozzle technology came from the proven FW-4 program, the FW-5 propellant used an HTPB propellant. Besides the Anik missions, FW-5 provided the apogee kick for Palapa, Westar and other satellites. In all, FW-5 flew 17 times with 100% success.



Country: USA. Propellants: Solid. Agency: CSD.
