The Phase I project objective is to develop and demonstrate the feasibility for use of an alternative process for mixing high-energy solid propellant materials that are used for gas generators in U.S. Navy strategic missile post-boost propulsion systems, other large missiles, and launch vehicles. In addition, the advanced mixing technology does not use impellers for mixing. The process selected for development is known as ResonantAcoustic Mixing, will be suitable for mixing up to 20 gallons of solid propellant.The technology proposed has a demonstrated history of safe operations for mixing a broad range of energetic materials (propellants, explosives & pyrotechnics) with many government agencies and companies worldwide.
