Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Contract: HQ0006-05-C-7284
Award Amount: $99,997.00
 

Abstract:

The overall objective of the proposed effort is to develop a solid rocket motor case based on metal matrix composites that will support compliance with insensitive munitions (IM) requirements while maintaining or increasing rocket motor performance. The Phase I effort will focus on developing physics-based models and designs of IM-compliant metal matrix composite solid rocket motor cases. Phase II activities will further demonstrate and validate the model predictions and IM case technology developed in Phase I and address scaling issues. During Phase III, the technology and methods developed during the prior phases will be implemented into solid rocket motors that are required to be IM compliant.
