Abstract
DSSP has developed solid propellant systems that can be controlled and extinguished electrically. These propellants are a first of their kind, capable of multiple ignitions-extinguishments with burn-rate controlled digitally by electrical power input. These new propellants are insensitive to flame ignition, do not produce toxic combustion gases and are low in particulates. Our partner Mide has a proven track record in the system engineering and development of attitude control systems and actuators for gun fired projectiles. Combining this experience we will develop a novel compact, safe-fueled propulsion system for the electromagnetic gun launched and other projectiles requiring insensitive munitions.
