Abstract : A study has been completed covering a preliminary design for a laboratory size solid propellant mixing facility. The objective was to design a facility in which, if possible, the man was removed from the hazardous portion of the operation. Five options were considered ranging from minimal to full automation. All five options are presented and discussed in detail. For the Phase II effort, a system where the mixing cell is fully automated is recommended.
