This test was conducted to qualify the propellant and evaluate the ballistic performance parameters. Various parameters, viz.,, thrust, chamber pressure, igniter pressure, temperature, strain, displacement, vibration and acoustic pressure, were validated and real-time data was recorded.

The pressure-time and thrust-time plots of the rocket motor matched exactly with the prediction. The ballistic performance parameters closely matched with the predicted values.
