AeroTech Releases RMS-Plus: A Major Enhancement of the 29 & 38mm Easy Access Reloadable Motor System
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA--April 15, 2000--AeroTech, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has begun shipment of its first major enhancement to the 29 & 38mm lines of Easy Access RMS high performance rocket motors, the RMS-Plus advanced delay sealing system.
RMS-Plus is a new delay charge configuration that seals the delay element radially (around the outside) rather than axially as in previous RMS reload kits. AeroTech designed RMS-Plus to be compatible with existing 29 & 38mm RMS forward closures, so that no new hardware purchase is necessary! The major benefits of RMS-Plus include:
o More precise delay times
o Greatly reduces the chance of forward closure "blow-by"
o Easier cleanup
o Motors may be left assembled indefinitely prior to use
o No need to remove delay charge assembly if closures are loosened
o No preload necessary for delay o-ring to seal
o One delay propellant formulation used for all delays
For nearly two years, the RMS-Plus design has been in the development and testing stages, which included lengthy examination by the Tripoli Motor Testing Committee (TMT) and beta testing by consumers.
Sixteen new RMS-Plus reload delay kits ("RDK's") will be available immediately to modify any older 29 & 38mm reload kits to the RMS-Plus design, if desired, and to change the delays of RMS-Plus reload kits. These RDK's are available in 6-paks at a retail price of $5.95 each. The older 29 & 38mm RDK's have been discontinued.
RMS-Plus reload kits and RDK's come complete with new improved illustrated instructions. The new reload kits can be identified by the prominent RMS-Plus logo on the reload kit header cards. The header cards include a handy cross-reference guide on the back side to assist dealers and flyers in selecting the appropriate RMS-Plus RDK for any particular reload kit.
In related news, AeroTech is simultaneously releasing short and medium delay versions of its newest 29mm Easy Access reload kit, the I200W, in the RMS-Plus configuration.
