Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 95-2
Budget: 01/01/95 - 12/31/95

The development of a nitrous oxide/ hydroxl-terminated polybutadiene (N20/HTPB) hybrid rocket motor technology database is proposed. For small rocket systems, N20 based hybrids potentially offer higher performance than liquid oxygen based hybrids for less complexity and cost. Storable and non-cryogenic, N20's advantages stem from its high (750 p...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 94-1
Budget: 01/01/94 - 12/31/94

Since hybrid propulsion is being developed for space launch vehicles, there is a strong need for understanding the physical mechanisms causing hybrid rocket combustion instability. The project's objective is to develop and demonstrate a Liquid Oxygen Hybrid Motor Combustion Stability Test Bed. This test bed consists of a 10,000 pound thrust liqu...
