Abstract:

It is the intent of the work described in the report to illustrate a process which readily lends itself to an irradiation curing process, viz., the production of pyrotechnic materials such as flares. Production methods used to date suffer heavily from the lack of automation and present many inherent safety hazards, many of which are based on the requirement that many of the production operations must be handled by individuals, in particular, the batch mixing processes. It has been the intent of the work described here to illustrate THAT Such a method of producing pyrotechnic materials is feasible and This method produces items that can be applied to future uses.
