Adranos, Inc. is currently developing a groundbreaking solid rocket propellant called ALITEC that uses an aluminum-lithium alloy fuel that increases rocket performance by up to 16.4%. ALITEC improves upon traditional propellants by eliminating the inefficient large molten droplets that form during metal combustion (i.e., slag formation). ALITEC has the potential to increase range of certain missile systems by more than 40%.
