Abstract : The patent concerns a castable solid rocket propellant having increased solids-to-binder ratio and to the preparation thereof. An object of the invention is to provide solid propellant grains with high solids loadings which will yield higher boost velocities when used in volume limited missile systems than have been obtained heretofore. It also provides a basic technique of formulation which can be applied to the filling of other polymer systems with a high volume percent of solid particles.
