Novel Propellant Ingredients Containing Gem-Dinitro Groups

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD06-PR1
Budget: 07/10/07 - 07/10/08
PI: Dr. Kurt Baum

Improved solid performance is needed to meet Integrated High Payoff Rocket Propulsion Technology (IHPRPT) Program goals. The principal objective of this program is to synthesize new hydroxy-terminated oligomers for use in polyurethane binders. These novel oligomers will contain gem-dinitro groups to provide performance advantages compared to cu...

Environmentally-Benign Oxidizers for Propulsion

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: SRI International

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-T007
Budget: 09/18/06 - 06/18/07
PI: Dr. Kurt Baum

Ammonium perchlorate (AP) is the most commonly used oxidizing ingredient in solid propellant formulations. It carries a sufficient excess of oxygen to allow for the combustion of the required binder and added metal, such as aluminum. One major drawback of AP is its chlorine content which results in the formation of hydrochloric acid (HCl) as a...

Synthesis of Energetic PrePolymers of Varying BAMO and NMMO or PGN Content and Structure

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-111
Budget: 06/09/05 - 04/25/11
PI: Dr. Rodney L. Willer

Composite propellants and explosives typically consist of solid oxidizers, metallic fuels, and rubbery binders that provide the needed mechanical properties. Most binder systems are cured by the formation of urethane linkages by the reaction of oligomeric diols with diisocyanates or triisocyanates. The availability of a variety of diols and is...

All-Nitrogen or High-Nitrogen Compounds as High Energy Density Materials

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: SRI International

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-T003
Budget: 09/15/04 - 06/15/05
PI: Dr. Kurt Baum

All-nitrogen compounds, also known as polynitrogen compounds, or nitrogen-rich compounds, such as polyazides, store large amounts of energy that can be released when these materials decompose to molecular nitrogen. The synthesis of these materials is very challenging because the reactants, intermediates, and desired products have high endothermi...

High Performance Azidonitro Plasticizers

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO99-006
Budget: 05/10/99 - 11/09/99
PI: Dr. Kurt Baum

Advanced propulsion technologies are needed by BMDO for both TMD and NMD applications. The ability to intercept ballistic or tactical missiles puts a premium on the accelerating power of propulsion systems, and consequently on the energy content of propellant ingresients. Under the proposed program, a little-studied method for the preparation o...
