Abstract

New and emerging threats are requiring that even boost phase propulsion become both more powerful, and more agile/flexible for improved target interception capabilities. At the same time these new boost propellants must also be safer to make and use, without increasing production costs dramatically. To meet these needs Digital Solid State Propulsion LLC (DSSP) has developed a family of Electric Controlled Propellants (ESP) that, when applied to advanced boosters, delivers the agility, performance, cost and IM characteristics solicited in this Missile Defense Agency (MDA) SBIR topic.
