MetadataShow full item record
A rocket motor powered corer has been designed and built. Limited tests of the rocket corer, conducted in a sand-silt-clay bottom at a depth of 100 feet off Pitas Point in Ventura County, showed promising results. It has been demonstrated that available rocket motors can be used to drive coring devices in relatively shallow water. Further tests are warranted to determine the maximum depth that rocket-powered instruments may be used. It presently appears possible that rocket motors may be used as a general source of power for varied underwater applications
