New Delhi, Oct 21 (UNI) Nearly 400 scientists from France, Russia, Singapore, Israel, Japan and Brazil will participate in the 2-day International Workshop on Advances in processing of Solid Propellant Rocket Motors to mark the Golden Jubilee celebrations of DRDO and Centenary Celebrations of its laboratory HEMRL.

During 'IWAPS 2008' workshop in Pune, being organised at the High Energy Materials Research Laboratory (HEMRL), 14 scientists from ISRO, DRDO and Ordnance factories, involved in the development and processing of rocket propellants, will be felicitated, according to the Defence Ministry.

Participants would deliberate on the present status and advances in the area of propellant mixing, casting technologies, internal ballistics, grain design, multiple thrust propulsion systems, synthesis of nano-materials and their applications, Non Destructive Examination techniques, modelling and simulation, clean and green propellants during the October 22-23 workshop.

The objective of the workshop is to bring top scientists and technologists together to discuss the advances in the field of solid propellant processing in order to meet the challenges ahead for advanced futuristic propulsion systems needed for high pay loads.

HEMRL, the premiere Defence Laboratory under Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), Ministry of Defence, has contributed significantly in the development of high-energy materials for various weapon systems deployed with the Armed Forces.

During its 100 years of journey HEMRL, made the country self-reliant in the area of development and processing of high energy materials for various missions.
