Abstract
The objective of the proposed research and development effort is to demonstrate the feasibility of an innovative approach to high performance and highly controllable solid rocket propulsion for advanced Divert and Attitude Control Systems (DACS) using powdered propellants. The proposed propulsion approach is capable of delivering a high level of specific impulse performance and a very large number of on/off pulse cycles. An advanced green propellant will be demonstrated that meets insensitive munitions requirements. The technology will be experimentally demonstrated during the research program.
