Orbital ATK will conduct the second and final qualification firing of the Solid Rocket Booster that will be used on NASA's SLS.

This test will monitor the SRB performance in cold conditions with the booster being chilled down to 40F. The motor firing will last for 2 minutes, the full firing on a rocket. During this time the rocket will be anchored to the test facility while numerous measurements are made for performance and other conditions.
