Abstract
The proposed program describes three techniques for generating particulate clouds for obscuration in the visible and infrared for periods extending to 30 seconds. The first technique produces in-situ formation of submicron TiO2 and other (environmentally safe) particles from a low temperature reaction. The second technique provides dissemination of TiO2 particles (and metal flakes) by gas generation from the (low-T less than 300degreesC) decomposition of additives which are activated by a proprietary"chemical heater"and an efficient heat transfer network. The third technique is a mechanical apparatus utilizing centrifugal force for the dispersal of the powders interest.
