Abstract:

Rocket borne chemical payload systems were designed, developed, and flight tested to give controlled releases of gases, liquids, solids and explosives. Chemical systems included liquids and gases trimethylaluminum triethylaluminum trimethylborane, nickel carbonyl, diborane, iron carbonyl, tetraethyl lead, nitric oxide and carbonyl sulfide solids aluminum oxide and chaff multi-phase reactions of trimethylaluminum and oxygen solid combustion reactions to vaporize aluminum, barium, beryllium, lithium, magnesium, sodium, strontium explosive systems to vaporize trimethylaluminum and iron pentacarbonyl and shaped charge techniques to vaporize aluminum, barium, lithium and iron. Chemical handling techniques were developed and engineering field services were provided to launch support.
