Annex A. Science And Technology Objectives (STOs)
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)


IV.I.03. Insensitive Munitions (IM) Minimum Smoke Propellants. Develop propulsion systems comprised of energetic materials and inert components for current and future Army tactical missile systems that meet the policy of the Joint Services Requirement for Insensitive Munitions (JSRIM). By the end of FY96, load IM motor cases with minimum signature solid propellant and complete IM testing. By FY97, identify MS formulations with survivable inert case concepts. By FY99, demonstrate the integration of an MS propellant and response-mitigating inert components in a tactical scale motor.

Supports: Mounted Battlespace Battle Lab, Dismounted Battlespace Battle Lab, HELLFIRE, JAVELIN and LOSAT, system upgrades and advanced concepts.
