Abstract
A joint Canadian Department of Communications and NASA Communications Technology Satellite (CTS) will be launched in late 1975. The Apogee Motor being developed for the satellite represents evolutionary advances in apogee motor technology. Extensive testing of the spacecraft, with apogee motors installed, has provided much needed data, early in the program, so as to provide a reliable spacecraft in a timely manner.
