Abstract:

  To overcome the HMTD tendency to detonate, decompose and to be toxic, feasibility studies are essential in Phase I. Few approaches are suggested; starting with a device which has the actual HMTD or HMTD mixed with no-odor matrix.  Each option will require a suitable packaging for storage and operation. These feasibility studies will be conducted in lab scale to enable a quick and massive amount of experiments within the six months of Phase I. The presence of HMTD in the training device is very important. The HMTD vapor consists of HMTD and some decomposition products. This complicated vapor composition requires the use of actual HMTD. The option of using HMTD pre-cursors (Hexamine and Hydrogen Peroxide) which can provide partially the HMTD odor, is a default one, taking into consideration that Hexamine is toxic as well. The HMTD for both options will be made with certain size, size distribution, crystal imperfections and its purity will be the highest achievable. The Optimization of the HMTD preparation process will be an important part of the developmenth tasks.  The HMTD loading into the case will be studied. It is expected that the lowest bulk density will the most preferable for the device safety.
