GEM 63 Rocket Motor QM-3 Static Test

On October 10, we completed the third static test fire of our GEM 63 rocket motor that will be used as a direct replacement for the existing strap-on boosters on United Launch Alliances Atlas V rocket. Firing for approximately 101 seconds at our Promontory, Utah, site, the 63-inch diameter motor satisfied additional requirements by the U.S. Air Force. Learn more about the GEM family of motors:
