Abstract : The invention relates generally to a new oxidant mixture for composite type propellants and a novel composite propellant using the oxidant. The oxidant consists of the admixture of HMX with potassium perchlorate. It is characterized by high impetus, high burning rate and high thermal stability (above about 300F) yet which is clean burning and does not form toxic and corrosive gases during combustion. When incorporated with a fuel-matrix binder, it is useful in cartridge activated personnel escape devices.
