Star 13
Thiokol solid rocket engine. Out of Production. A braking motor used by NASA for the Anchored Interplanetary Monitoring Platform program.

AKA: TE-M-458. Status: Out of Production. Number: 9 . Thrust: 3.80 kN (854 lbf). Gross mass: 36 kg (79 lb). Unfuelled mass: 5.00 kg (11.00 lb). Specific impulse: 273 s. Burn time: 22 s. Diameter: 0.33 m (1.08 ft).

A charge of AP/Al urethane contained in a spherical case of 6Al-4V titanium, with a graphite/vitreous silica phenolic nozzle. Sweden's Freja scientific satellite used it in October of 1992, to raise its apogee. Total impulse 8,524 kgf-sec. Motor propellant mass fraction 0.869.
