Abstract

An infrared decoy flare composition for generating infrared radiation, including a fuel, an oxidizing agent and a binder, wherein the decoy flare composition contains no metals or metal-containing compounds and no halogens or halogen-containing compounds. Such an infrared decoy flare composition can be particularly advantageously used in aerial infrared decoy flares for civil aircraft.

Independent Claims | See all claims (12)

  1. 1. An infrared decoy flare composition comprising: a fuel, an oxidizing agent and a binder, wherein the infrared decoy flare composition generates infrared radiation and contains no metals or metal-containing compounds and no halogens or halogen-containing compounds, said fuel is selected from the group consisting of hexacyanobenzene and nitrated cyanobenzenes.
  2. 12. An infrared decoy flare composition comprising: 35% by weight hexacyanobenzene, 60% by weight hexanitroethane and 5% by weight polynitropolyphenylene, wherein the infrared decoy flare composition generates infrared radiation, has emissions between 3 and 5 μm and 2 and 3 μm and contains no metals or metal-containing compounds and no halogens or halogen-containing compounds.
