The modification of the solid propellants with nanosized aluminum has been studied. The nanosized aluminum has been found to improve burning characteristics of the propellants. The surface treatment of nanosized aluminum has been shown to affect the processabilty of formulations prepared. The physical properties including viscosity of uncured propellant mass was studied.
