Abstract
In 1971 the Canadian Armed Forces stated a need for an improved 2.75-in rocket. In response to this requirement DREV developed the CRV7; essential design features were the use of a highly aluminized HTPB composite propellant, a wrap-around-fin nozzle, and an aft-end ignition system set in the nozzle throat. Despite moderate production runs, costs were maintained at a reasonable level by modifying the design to rely extensively on sintered, cast and molded components. The success of the design has been confirmed by an extensive program of static, ground and air-launch tests.
