Abstract: Measurements in support of the 30-mm Enhanced Alternate High-Energy Propellant Program (EAHEP) were taken at the Building 390 recording facility. Propellants evaluated for this series of tests were M30, U.S. Army Armament Research, Development, and Engineering Center (ARDEC) 7994, BAMO-AMMO/CL20, BAMO-AMMO/CL20/NQ, and BAMO-AMMO-RDX. This facility, the central data acquisition network for the Propulsion and Flight Division (PFD) of the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL), was operated by the Experimental Ballistics Team (EBT) of the Propulsion Branch (PB). The testing was conducted in support of an ongoing Army effort to further investigate high-energy gun propellants that promise enhanced performance from existing tank and artillery systems.
