The program reached a successful conclusion with the attainment of propellant grains capable of withstanding an 800F environment for one hour and performing as required from computed impetus values. Difficulties were experienced in crosslinking the carborane polymer. Conventional closed bomb evaluation of these typical slow-burning, high-temperature propellants was shown not to be applicable for these systems. Two pounds of pelletized propellant were furnished along with one and one-half pounds of unmixed granular propellant. A secondary objective of the program was concerned with a study of the B-AgF2 reaction. Results indicate the feasibility of using the above as a water- ignitable propellant system. Additional study is indicated to optimize the system and further elucidate the reaction mechanism.
