Critical Chemicals Collaborations Colloquium (C4)

We hope to strengthen the relationships between DPA Title III and industry partners, and as part of this greater outcome, gather data that will be the center of upcoming funding opportunities announcements (FOA) and request for proposals (RFP) which are crucial to the success of the DPA Title III programs. One goal of this event will be to establish an HTPB working group, as part of the Critical Energetics Materials Working Group (CEMWG), to unravel the challenges of the HTPB production to resolve them and establish sufficient U.S. production capabilities. Subsequent C4 events will focus on the same intent but for other critical chemicals that will be selected prior, based on input from NAC, CEMWG and DPA Title III. This first event will kick off a series, which will serve to generate future DPA Title III requirements.
