Research Institution

Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI), in collaboration with ATK Energetic Systems, proposes to prepare a new class of stabilizers to improve the response of double base propellants to long term storage and cook-off conditions. These stabilizer molecules allow the incorporation of functionality of greater reactivity than current art solutions by eliminating compatibility issues. It is anticipated that, unlike prior art stabilizers, these compounds will be suitable for use in a wide range of double base propellant formulations. In Phase I, PSI will produce small samples of the new materials and assess their compatibility with double base propellant components. In Phase II, PSI will generate further analogs, scale-up production and ATK will provide aging and ballistics testing on double base propellants prepared with the new stabilizers.
