Abstract : In an integrated program, a highly promising heterogeneous metallized propellant of LMH-1/N2H4 which is stable, storable and has desirable rheological properties has been developed. Chemical stability and physical integrity, combined with ease of preparation, make this system especially attractive. The cohesive propellant developed was found to possess engineering properties which are desirable in heterogeneous propellants. Fifty pounds of propellant was prepared and sent to the AFRPL for Air Force in-house performance evaluation.
