The results of study of physicochemical processes developing in the samples of furazanotetrazinedioxide (FTDO) and its mixes with dinitrodiazapentane (DNP) upon irradiation by the high-current electron beam with the energy density varied in the range of 0.05-60 J/cm2 are presented. Pre-explosion processes taking place in materials under examination at below threshold modes of excitation are studied. Electron beam threshold energy densities leading to explosive decomposition of FTDO and FTDO/DNP mixes are determined. Noticeable effect of the electron beam energy density on kinetic characteristics of explosive decomposition process of FTDO is discovered. Spectra of the products of FTDO explosive decomposition are measured at explosion initiation in the atmosphere.
