Principal Investigator: Dr Herman Krier
Award Amount: $493,000.00
Abstract:
Laser rocket propulsion research recently has demonstrated substantialpotential for the conversion of high power laser energy into thermal propulsive energy, using either continuous or pulsed mode laser sources. it is now possible for the first time to develop prototype designs for actual laser… More

Heat-Exchanger for High Specific Impulse Maneuvering

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1992 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: John W. Black
Award Amount: $49,520.00
Abstract:
Strategic defense missions place a premium on the performance capabilities of onboard propulsion systems. An innovative technique for producing very high impulse at excellent thrust-to-weight ratios is known as laser-powered heat-exchanger propulsion. A remotely stationed high power laser is used to… More
