Abstract:

AFN has demonstrated acceptable properties to further propellant development displayed good stability thermal, friction, impact and detonability, low melt point is suitable for monopropellant applications, and extremely low toxic vapor concentrations. AFN based propellant has been evaluated to indicate additional development is warranted high performance demonstrated in thruster test bed, acceptable safety properties and low toxic vapor concentrations.
