Abstract
Karagozian & Case (K & C) is pleased to submit this proposal to conduct a nine-month Phase I Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) feasibility study aimed at developing electrical and physiochemical models for electromagnetic radiation (EMR) effects on energetic materials (EMs). There is an expressed need in US Air Force SBIR topic AF141-131 to conduct innovative research on EMR effects on EMs and develop models useful to understanding causes of inadvertent ignition of munitions and predicting energy output under various physical, chemical, and EMR conditions. The models we propose to develop will incorporate all physical, chemical, temporal, and EMR parameters relevant to various classes of EMs exposed to a wide-range of EMR conditions. The models will provide insight to safety features needed in the design of munitions and the design of new energetic materials themselves.
