The objective of the proposed Advanced Research for Controllable, Highly Efficient Rocket Propulsion (ARCHER) Phase II is to develop and demonstrate an innovative, high-performing solid propellant that would enable a lightweight DACS with a high mass fraction that would be agile enough to provide a very small, minimum propulsive impulse bit. This system would also be highly efficient, environmentally friendly, and show good promise of meeting Insensitive Munitions requirements. The propellant being developed would meet US Navy requirements for a solid propellant DACS on Navy vessels.
