Abstract
MEGABAR CORPORATION HAS DEVELOPED AND DEMONSTRATED CONTINUOUS PROCESS TECHNOLOGY FOR THE MANUFACTURE OF ENERGETIC MATERIALS BASED ON OXIDIZING SALTS AND HYDROCARBON FUELS COMBINED IN THE MOLTEN STATE. THE PROCESS APPEARS TO HAVE SIGNIFICANT ADVANTAGES IN THE MANUFACTURE OF SOLID ROCKET PROPELLANTS, SINCE IT IS CAPABLE OF ACHIEVING HIGH SOLIDS LOADINGS WITHOUT RESORT TO MECHANICAL GRINDING, AND SINCE APPROPRIATE BINDERS CAN BE CONTINUOUSLY INCORPORATED IN THE FUEL PHASE WITHOUT BATCH MIXING. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF PRODUCING PROPELLANTS USING EXISTING PROPRIETARY PROCESS EQUIPMENT AND WILL IDENTIFY PROCESS VARIABLES AFFECTING CERTAIN EQUIPMENT AND WILL IDENTIFY PROCESS VARIABLES AFFECTING CERTAIN MECHANICAL AND BALLISTIC PROPERTIES OF SAMPLES SO PRODUCED.
