Abstract:

There have been a number of serious incidents recently during the manufacture of infrared decoy flares. Some of these incidents were thought to be electrostatic discharge ESD related. To aid in the search for the cause of these problems, we compiled this partial list of reports relating to electrostatic discharge in energetic materials. We extracted these citations from bibliographies prepared by the Chemical Propulsion Information Agency. There are 97 citations. Keywords include Pyrotechnics, Propellants, Explosives, Bibliography, Electrostatics, and Sensitivity.
