  • O-103 Review of the Use of HTPE in Rocket Motor propellants

    November 2005

    A new family of propellants based on the hydroxyl-terminated polyether (HTPE) polymer has moved into the forefront of solid propellant technology for tactical missile rocket motors, mainly because of a reduced sensitivity to Insensitive Munitions (IM) stimuli.
