Abstract : This report documents the information presented at the eighth annual High Energy Density Matter (HEDM) Contractors' Conference held 5-7 June 1994 in Crystal Bay NV. This report contains the extended abstracts of the oral, workshop, and poster presentations given by the Air Force funded contractors and by the in-house researchers from the Phillips Laboratory. The main purpose of the High Energy Density Matter (HEDM) program is to research and develop advanced high energy compounds containing increased energy densities (energy to mass ratios) to produce greater specific impulses (thrust per weight flow rate of propellant) which will enable spacecraft to carry larger payloads. With these advanced propellants, future space-bound payloads could be possibly four times greater that they are today. jg
