Summerfield – The History of a Rocket Research Establishment

The BIS Online Shop » Books »

Research that began in America during 1942, when a rocket engineer watched roofers pour asphalt down, prompted the development of castable double-base propellants in the UK which, from the early 1950s, gave Summerfield a world-class role in producing these unique composites.

This detailed and highly readable book records the story of a facility near Kidderminster, Worcestershire, which has become a world name in quality research, development and manufacture for double-base propellants.

This book is a reprint and the BIS is once again making available what promises to remain the definitive history of this unique facility which, while absorbing personnel from Westcott and Waltham Abbey when those facilities closed, has maintained a reputation of the highest regard among rocket engineers in the UK, Europe and the United States.
