Abstract

High speed fiber grating diagnostic systems may be used to measure the velocity, position and pressures associated propellant burning during a rocket motor firing. This Phase I SBIR is directed toward the demonstration of the feasibility of this type of system which may also be used to measure strain, pressure and moisture in the propellant region prior to firing.
