Areas of Work


The charter of duties of the facility is to develop and process composite propellants for different missiles / strategic programmes.

Composite propellant processing and Testing
Case bonded composite propellant grains are processed with a wide spectrum of mechanical & ballistic properties suiting to mission requirements. Raw materials are processed in the state-of-the art remotely controlled facilities. Mixers of various capacities are available to process the propellant slurry. Facilities are available to prepare internally insulated rocket motor case and subsequent casting of slurry into it in single and multiple modes of processing. The propellant slurry is further polymerised at an elevated temperature to obtain the desired structure.

The laboratory is equipped with modern instruments for quality and process control. ACEM has one of the best NDT facility for propellant grains in the country. Ballistic evaluation of rocket motors up to 100 T thrust is carried out on swing benches.

ACEM would be augmented to meet the requirement of HD 1.1 class of propellant and large diameter motor processing capability in near future.
