Replacement of Red Phosphorus in smoke producing munitions
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Current smoke producing munitions posess significant total obscuring power (TOP) but suffer from the drawbacks taht they are both toxic and corrosive towards military personnel and hardware respectively. A burgeoning need therefore exists for alternative obscurants which are benign as well as posess high TOP properties. Polyphenol derivatives represent one such promising class of materials meeting this criteria and will be developed and characterized during this proposed Phase I SBIR research program.
