Subject: TSRM BEM-6 Test a Success

In a Cinco de Mayo spectacular, Thiokol conducted a picture-perfect TSRM BEM-6 test. You can re-live the excitement by viewing the attached file.

The preliminary test data couldn't look better. Pulse 1 performance was nominal and there was no leakage through the barrier. This test was a big milestone for the TSRM program because it was our first motor test of a new design since TSRM-4. The new design held up great through Pulse 1. In our next test, we will fire both pulses. Congratulations to everyone who contributed to this successful test!
