Qualifies under SAM 1.1.1. and 1.1.4.The University of Texas at El Paso requests the purchase of instrumentation for research and education on energetic materials that will enhance the University`s capabilities in materials characterization and combustion experiments. The proposed acquisition will provide a new capability of conducting research of energetic materials under high pressures, will improve the diagnostics, and will expand the variety of materials that can be tested. This will complete the establishment of a fully equipped laboratory for comprehensive studies of energetic materials, which will be used by the engineering faculty members for their current and future DoD grants. The laboratory will provide a research environment that is relevant and comparable to today`s government and industrial facilities.
