... booster rocket motors manufactured in the United States are strong candidates for filament-winding. The Titan IV strap-on booster is now a filament–wound carbon-graphite-epoxy composite that has replaced the high-strength steel cases ( Fig. 15 ). Strap-on boosters for Atlas and Delta rockets are also...
