Paper Abstract

Contamination from. plumes of solid rocket motors has been suspect over the years for the anomalous temperature behavior of many spacecraft systems and subsystems. The presence of contamination only can t determined positively when the vehicle is manned, returned to Earth, or by incontrovertible instrument response. An instrument package has been designed and fabricated to monitor any condensible contamination that occurs during the ignition and burn of a TE-M-7i64-15 apogee kick motor. The results of this experiment will be particularly moaningful to those concerned with. modeling the flow fields and subsequent contamlnation effects of solid rocket motors on critical spacecraft surfaces or on the optics of scientific experiments.
