April 2nd, 2006 -- The Newest addition to the line of Contrail Rockets Motors is the 152mm Hardware Line.  This hardware line currently has the O-6300 Reload Certified for use in this hardware set.  The O-6300 Reload has a total impulse of 28197 Ns which rates in at a 37% O Motor.  Max Thrust of this motor is 2850 Pounds, with a burn time of 4.5 seconds.  Paul Holmes was the Certifying official from TMT who tested this motor.  Below is what he had to say about the latest certification session. 

To All,

I am very pleased to announce, after a two day test session, another set of 12 motors are to be certified from Contrail Rockets. Data will follow in a few days (just got home) including a full set of Sparky motors in the 54 MM line.

The most important motor we tested was in the new 152 MM motor line. The first motor in this line is a really impressive motor on the stand.

The O6300 is a 152 MM X 6 foot motor, loaded with 15000 CC of Nitrous Oxide. Total Impulse is 28197NS (37% O), with a max thrust of 12677 Newtons. Motor starts with the max thrust (2850 pounds) and the curve is almost a perfect straight line at a 45 degree angle to zero at 4.5 seconds. The visible flame from this motor extended from the 45 degree 12" duct to about 10 or 15 feet and completely filled the duct with an extreme yellow flame.

TMT Chairman
