Abstract:

The deployment and operation of chemically driven, directed-energy weapon systems, such as the Airborne Laser ABL, require strategies, systems, and training that have not been demonstrated previously in the Air Force, the Department of Defense, or industry. These weapons utilize large quantities of reactive chemicals. Traditional chemical equipment and processes are heavy, large, and permanently installed in fixed facilities. From 1999 to 2002, AFRLMLQ researchers evaluated various blending techniques and processes for producing mixed-base hydrogen peroxide MHP. The evaluation criteria for the production facility included deployability, setup time for production, and logistics. This report focuses on the rapid production of MHP using liquefied nitrogen.
