Rocket propellant is composed of fuel and oxidants to maintain its combustion in space. NOF develops and produces various types of solid propellant. NOF has provided solid propellant for all Japanese rockets, stretching back to 1955 when "pencil rocket" was developed. As rockets grew in size, they required propellant giving higher performance. In response, NOF has carried out research and development of new type of propellants and introduced new and improved manufacturing technologies, production facilities and equipment to ensure the reliability of its products. Currently, NOF has two locations associated with rocket production: Taketoyo Plant in Aichi Prefecture, which manufactures propellant for S-310 and S-520 rockets, used for weather observation; and Tanegashima Works in Kagoshima Prefecture, which produces propellant for SRB-A solid rocket boosters used on H-IIA and H-IIB rockets. Boasting the world's largest solid propellant mixer, Tanegashima Works can efficiently manufacture large-scale solid rocket boosters. NOF makes an effort for the development of Solid propellant for Epsilon Rocket following M-V rocket.
