59 PTE PROJECT – CHIMERA 2020

The aim of the project is to develop the industrial manufacturing capacity of thermal countermeasure (FLARE) munitions through technology transfer and know-how from the Scientific Research Centre for CBRN Defence and Ecology (Partner 1) to CN Romarm SA (Coordinator) - one of the largest defense companies in Eastern Europe - which will ensure the implementation of this project in a subsidiary of CN ROMARM SA specialized in manufacturing, development and subsequent homologation of this type of military equipment - Plopeni Mechanical Plant, in order to ensure the needs of the Romanian Air Force (training, stock), as well as for external beneficiaries.

59 PTE PROJECT – CHIMERA 2021

The project aims to develop a technology for the industrial production of thermal countermeasure munitions for use by Air Force combat aircraft. This project aims to develop the composition of the thermal countermeasure and priming pyrotechnic composition, the production of mechanical elements such as the cartridge tube, the electrical ignition and discharge cap casing, the ejector piston and its components. The aim is to improve performance by replacing magnesium in the composition with magnesium in order to increase the radiative intensity and the rate of combustion, introducing polyurethane as a binder, which, due to its properties, provides mechanical resistance and resistance to the thermal and oxidative factors to which ammunition is subjected in long-term storage conditions, and using hexamine as a fuel due to its high nitrogen content and high energy density, as well as due to its entirely gaseous reaction products. The development of a new thermal countermeasure requires the characterization of the combustion temperature and its signature in the infrared spectrum, its burning time and the ejection velocity of the pyrotechnic caliber. A high-density polyethylene ejector plunger injection molding line and a pyrotechnic cup molding plant using the semi-liquid pressing process will be developed.

59 PTE PROJECT – CHIMERA 2022

Validation of the prototype batch by testing under real operating conditions and verification of its functionality with a view to approval of the industrial prototype batch - T:07/09/2022.
