12 m (40 ft) impact test of NOFBX monopropellant drop test article demonstrating insensitivity of the NOFBX monopropellants (4 different series were tested) to a high energy fall. The 12 m drop test is a MIL-STD2105D test requirement for assuring impact insensitivity of a container containing an energetic material.
