Composite solid propellants experience aging process during storage, and their properties will alter. The stabilizer added was used to reduce the effects of aging. This research studied the influence of the stabilizer on changes of the composite solid propellant thermal decomposition due to the onset of aging during the 40 days of storage at a temperature of 333 K. AO 2246 as a stabilizer added by as much as 0 to 1% by weight of propellant binders. The testing method used is heating the samples at various heating rate using DSC. And the Ozawa method was used to determine the values of the activation energy and frequency factor on the Arrhenius parameters. The optimal composition of stabilizer was 0.5 wt% for those on the value of activation energy and frequency factors for unaged and aged propellants were nearly the same i.e. 196 kJ/mol and 1.22 x1012 min-1.
