Abstract
Several novel non-phosphorus based pyrotechnic formulations will be refined and integrated into both M18 & M83 smoke grenades during this Phase II Program. These compositions will be subjected to extensive testing by both Ventana as well as an independent laboratory and grenades loaded with this formulation will have better obscuring power relative to conventional red phosphorus based munitions.
