Research Topics


The objectives of the Phase II effort are: 1. The development of techniques for extracting dry HAP from aqueous solutions. 2. The development of melt-cast methodology for HAP/Sodium Perchlorate (SP). 3. The development of methodology for the admixing of particulate aluminum into the HAP/SP molten matrix. 4. The evaluation of explosive sensitivity and performance characteristics. 5. The development of methodology for uniformly mixing and casting void free HAP/SP/Al charges. 6. The comparison of an HAP/SP/Al charge with PBXN-103 in underwater performance.
