Abstract
Reactive warheads increase lethality by igniting propellants/fuels in targets, by melting and destroying electronic components, by providing substantial blast overpressure effects inside of the target after impact, and by providing heat energy to destroy potential biological and chemical payloads. Currently, the range of reactive material options is largely limited to Al-polymer composites, thermites, and intermetallics. In the Proposed Phase i SBIR program, Powdermet will investigate a series of metal/salt nanocompostes that can be tailored to provide a wide range of thermal profiles and energies. By controlling structure at the nanoscale, ignition, burn rate, and safety issues can be addressed and tailored.
