Research Institution

The objectives of the proposed effort include propellant enhancement demonstrated by higher thrust, impulse and higher projectile velocity and range as well as HE enhancement resulting into higher lethality based on blast and impulse enhancement. The effort will eventually develop data demonstrating promise and delivery of 1kg material samples for further evaluation by the Army. The proposed efforts are based on concepts utilizing additives which generate hydrogen gas, added energy through enhanced intrinsic reactivity and subsequence combustion. Laboratory, as well as field measurements, are included. The concepts provide a higher probability for energy release in the detonation region and Gurney output enhancement.
