Research Area 2 – Focus Area 2: Tailoring Chemistry via Materials

Goal: Develop new energetic defeat systems with a team of experts and energetic systems evaluation and modeling with the ultimate goal of intelligently designing a new class of multiple-characteristic, time/temperature defeat energetics amenable to manufacturing scale-up.

Strategy: Fundamental analyses of material behavior, development and use of novel experimental diagnostics, and development and implementation of new computational models.
