Significant advances have been made recently in the areas of synthesis, ignition, combustion, and mechanical characterization of energetic materials. Some of these new energetic materials contain nano-sized ingredients, which exhibit specific advantages for military and commercial applications in the chemical propulsion field. The advancements were achieved through experimental, theo-retical, and computational efforts. In order to promote technical communication and to encourage further advancement in this important area, the International Advisory Committee for the Foundation of International Symposium on Special Topics in Chemical Propulsion decided to conduct the Sixth International Sym-posium (6-ISICP): Advancements in Energetic Materials and Chemical Propulsion. The materials are presented within the pages of this book and also on CD.
