Iraq Survey Group Final Report
Solid-Propellant Motor Casting Chambers
The capability to cast large solid-propellant rocket motors increased with the repair of two previously destroyed (and prohibited) casting chambers and the construction of an even larger chamber.
- A new, even larger casting chamber, approximately 1.56 meters external diameter by 6 meters deep, had been built for possible use in the production of a motorcase up to 1.25 meters in diameter. Because the chamber was built by Iraq and had not been used to produce proscribed items, UNMOVIC chose only to monitor the facility.
