Thiokol solid rocket engine. Out of Production. Orbit insertion motor incorporated the lightweight case developed for the STAR 13 with the propellant and nozzle design of the earlier TE-M-516 apogee motor.

AKA: 14.8-KS-1,708;TE-M-763. Status: Out of Production. Number: 3 . Thrust: 7.60 kN (1,709 lbf). Gross mass: 47 kg (103 lb). Unfuelled mass: 6.00 kg (13.20 lb). Specific impulse: 286 s. Burn time: 15 s. Diameter: 0.33 m (1.08 ft).

The motor case was stretched 2.2 inches to provide for increased propellant loading. The motor was used to adjust orbit inclination of a satellite from a Delta launch. Total impulse 11,807 kgf-s. Propellant mass fraction 0.87.



Country: USA. Propellants: Solid. Agency: Thiokol.
