WASHINGTON, Nov. 3: (ff) --The ·-·navy announced today a new 'smokeless rocket motor for aircraft booster power. It claimed for the motor greater safety and better ^performance. ' ~ -· The newfjato or rato (jet 01 rocket assist for take off) is-ex-. pected to become standard for the military services.

Experts,say the -ash-laden smoke 'trail .of the present unit is unsatisfactory .because it blacks out car-i · rier decks and airport runways i . and. might damage aircraft in the j vicinity.-,.The new unit, based on; .-'smokeless powder .such as is used' in guns and rockets, will, have a 1 barely discernible exhaust trail.
