Abstract:

The program objective is to develop a family of solid propellants based on HTPB hydroxyl terminated polybutadiene binder, and demonstrate one optimized propellant formulation by large scale motor testing. Phase I data on DL-H271, an analog of TP-H1136, showed exceptionally fine structural properties after 27 months of aging at 75 and 135F. Additional data is presented for Phase II aging. The TU77503 structural test vehicle was instrumented and cast with TP-H1139 propellant.
