Thermoplastic Composite Solid Propellant

Modern solid propellants emerged in the early 1940s with the invention of composite propellants, and they have been developed ever since with the great surge of development progress. The processing technique with two-roll milling showed that grain production is possible from TPE binder system propellants, which contain higher levels of solids. Propellant compositions using this binder system can accept up to 90% filler, depending on the type of process taking place. This composition blends with a combination of customised propellant cross-section geometry and exposed burning surface, enabling the design of different types of rocket motors. Modular grain technology applies to both small and large calibres (larger than 500 mm). Since its very beginning, EDePro has been fostering its technological development, and it is now one of the biggest and most reliable producers in Southeastern Europe.


Thermal Insulation Materials

Ablative materials are the linchpin of the entire aerospace industry, including propulsion devices such as solid rocket motors (SRM). They are also known as thermal protection system (TPS) materials. EDePro uses various thermal protection systems and materials, mostly ablative (such as graphite for calculated rocket motor nozzle erosion) and thermal insulation materials. The press material known as AG-4V is based on a modified phenol-formaldehyde resin as a binder, and on a fibreglass filler. This material has a high mechanical strength and heat resistance, good electrical insulating properties, as well as low water absorption. In addition, it is chemically resistant and intended for manufacturing products used in tropical climates. Both of these technologies belong to EDePro, including the custom-designed and produced mould structures and engineering solutions for each rocket motor design.

Fibre Optic Link

Fibre optic technology plays irreplaceable role in modern defence industry and is used in wide variety of military uses, such as air, sea and ground applications. This technology is implemented in EDePro’s own developed guided missiles systems - micro cruise missile ALAS and anti-tank NLOS missile system solution. Fibre optic data link enables these systems to remain unaffected by electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

Within the fibre optic technology package, Company EDePro implemented a complete launcher to missile communication link with a new automated fibre winding machine and supporting equipment for applications up to 25km fibre optic line. Our own fibre optic laboratory also provides high-speed pay-out verification and complete environmental testing. Our solutions ensure safe and effective communication, high reliability and performance in the battlefield, even in the most complex and sensitive missions. Within our innovation ecosystem, we enable our customers to tap into research advances and novel technologies, without additional costs and need for internal R&D. That is our job.
