A number of problems related to the utilization of nanosize aluminum powders as a combustible component of perspective compositions of high-energy materials is considered. The technology of producing nanopowders using the technique of conductor electrical explosion and the method of dispersed powder composition analysis are shown. The results of experimental studies of conductive and radiant ignition of model propellant compositions containing aluminum nanopowder, as well as the results of investigating the rate of stationary and non-stationary combustion of the given systems, are given. The results of an investigation of the ignition and combustion of ecologically safe propellant systems based on a dual oxidant (ammonium perchlorate and ammonium nitrate, which partially replaces it) containing aluminum nanopowder are demonstrated.
