Spoke to Michael on another thread. The team is aware of what milestones must be reached before proceeding to Flight Readiness reviews.

Is this thread publicly available? Would also like to have access to information about the Phase 3 Report

Flight Readiness Reviews (FRR) and Phase 3 documents are on hold until the teams can show successful completion of motor testing. That means a successful full thrust, full duration hotfire with data. This data will be needed to have accurate 6DOF dispersion analysis for the FAA and White Sands reviews.

I want to be very clear. Motor testing should have been completed before the submission of the Static Hotfire reports. The Phase 2 Documents were your Critical Design Review, (meaning FINAL production version). So to say that all of the teams have been severely affected by COVID is a terrible understatement. And every teams has a significant amount of motor testing to complete before they can proceed to Phase 3.

The Base11 Safety Council will not accelerate or compress the critically important FRR Safety process. The deadline for starting this process is quickly approaching.
