An experimental investigation was conducted to determine the feasibility and practicality of the dual rocket motor concept. Cold flow studies were performed with the aid of a ground-test simulator which incorporated a telescoping booster cavity. The effects of booster cavity length, booster cavity shockdown pressure, booster/sustainer nozzle area ratios, and aft nozzle removal on thrust and performance were explored and discussed.
