Abstract: Under contracts with the Air Force Phillips Laboratory (Edwards Air Force Base, California) and Hughes Missiles Systems Company, the Elkton Division of Thiokol Corporation has completed the design, development, and qualification of a third stage for use in the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization (BMDO)/ navy Terrier Lightweight Exoatmospheric Projectile (LEAP) flight experiments. The stage consists of a solid- propellant motor with omni-axis thrust vector control (TVC), safe-and-arm (S&A) devices, flight-termination system, pitch/yaw/ roll attitude control system (ACS), cables/connectors, and skirt/interstage structures. The motor with these components is designated as the advanced solid axial stage (ASAS). This paper describes the design, requirements, and results of component- and system- level testing to qualify the stage for the flight tests (FTV-3 and FTVA) scheduled for December 1994 - January 1995.
