Abstract
The proposed research will identify - and initiate the development of - key innovative technologies for assuring that dual-pulse solid rocket motors for future air supremacy missiles are capable of defeating highly maneuverable air targets. The proposed Knobley Technical Associates (KTA)team, by bringing more than 120 years of combined directly applicable experience in solid rocket pulse motor development and manufacture,assures focus on high payoff technologies. The investigative focus is on identifying the best combinations of ingredients, materials and components- and paths for needed developmental advances - to produce designs achieving major improvements in extending flight time, end game maneuverability and insensitive-munition-compliance, assuring future air supremacy. Key technologies to be evaluated are high-performance IM-compliant propellants including HTPE; lightweight high-pressure, high-temperature, high-stiffness (g-capability)composite cases/airframes; low-erosion lightweight nozzles; innovative pulse separation technologies; service-life-extending migration barriers; and efficiently-packaged LEEFI-based ignition trains. Phase I will produce two fully-integrated dual-pulse solid rocket motor designs featuring enabling materials and component technologies, and detailed Program Plans for component and full-scale dual-pulse motor demonstration and development, in Phase II. Driven by the uniquely-experienced KTA project team, these technologies will be both innovative and practical/affordable.
