The combustion products of solid rocket fuels at a pressure of 40 atm have been studied by molecular beam mass spectrometry. A facility with a four-stage molecular beam formation system has been designed. The possibility of quantifying the composition of combustion products is shown using as an example a composite fuel based on ammonium dinitramide and polycaprolactone.
