Abstract
DSSP has developed solid state hardware and propellants that can be controlled and extinguished electrically. These propellants are a first of their kind, capable of multiple ignitions-extinguishments with burn-rates controlled digitally by electrical power input. We continue to defined burn rate additives of the electric solid propellant and fully self-sustaining end-members formulations as a means of altering electrical ignition levels without compromising IM safety. We will also develop numerical modeling of a rocket motor based control system within the current HSR design parameters.
