Iraq Survey Group Final Report


Propellant Production

Iraq attempted to increase its solid-propellant production capability by repairing the prohibited 300-gallon mixers declared “destroyed” by the UN.

  • While accounts differ, Iraq was reportedly able to repair at least one of the two 300-gallon mixers and two mixing bowls. Reports indicate that either one mixer was repaired to increase the existing mixing capability, or that both mixers were brought on line to support the requirement for a larger motor for the long-range missile program.
  • A cooperative source stated that the Iraqis immediately prior to the entry of UNMOVIC inspectors destroyed the 300-gallon mixers. Despite extensive searches, that included active source participation, ISG has not found physical evidence of mixers, parts, or debris.
