Abstract:

The Clean, Agile Manufacturing of Propellants, Explosives, and Pyrotechnics CAMPEP program managed by ONR and funded by the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program SERDP has an overall goal of enabling a 90 reduction in pollution and scrap from the Nations PEP life cycle. Lockheed Martin Missiles Space LMMS is contributing to the portion of CAMPEP dealing with PEP processes in an effort to eliminate or reduce scrap and to facilitate recyclerecovery of PEP materials. We are focusing on selected PEP processes to understand how the physicalchemical behavior of the propellant or explosive in the process affects the scrap and pollution generated by the process. Gaining this understanding will allow us to improve and control the selected processes to demonstrate pollution reduction. The tools developed for achieving this aim will then be proven and transferable to other PEP processes, furthering the overall SERDP goal. This Program is closely aligned with related programs at other sites involved in the SERDP-sponsored research on the processing science of energetic materials. These groups include the Naval Surface Weapons Center-Indian Head Division NSWC, Stevens Institute of Technology SYP, Los Alamos National Laboratory LANL, Sandia National Laboratory, the California Institute of Technology CIT, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT, and the Naval Air Warfare Center NAWC, China Lake.
