Advanced Reactive Intermetallic propellants for Dual Use
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
In order to gain the full potential from application of metal and elemental powder based materials to generate an enhanced propellant formulation, General Sciences, Incorporated, proposes to investigate the use of intrinsically reactive intermetallic based compositions for the production of an increase impulse propellant. The Phase I program will establish a basis for the application and selection of reactive intermetallic systems, to include an analysis of the reaction/combustion process in a typical propellant composition, determination (experimentally) of the change in the resultant propellant characteristics (e.g., thrust, burn rate, specific impulse) and an initial material safety screening evaluation.
