Combustion Stability Innovations for Liquid Rocket

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: GEORGIA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
Principal Investigator: Tedi Ohanian, CEO/Chief Technical Officer
Award Amount: $99,982.00
RI Contact: Ben Zinn
Abstract:
Combustion instability in liquid rocket engines (LREs) has manifested in nearly all LRE development programs. While the driving mechanisms of combustion instability are vast and coupled, in all instances, the net result is significant cost and schedule over-runs. In today's business environment,… More

Environmentally-Benign Oxidizers for Propulsion

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: UNIV. OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
Principal Investigator: Karl Christe, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,971.00
RI Contact: Robert Bau
Abstract:
Ammonium perchlorate (AP) is the most commonly used oxidizing ingredient in solid propellant formulations. It carries a sufficient excess of oxygen to allow for the combustion of the required binder and added metal, such as aluminum. The major drawback of AP is its chlorine content which results in… More

Abstract:
Our vision for the next generation missile propulsion is a flexible and non-toxic system using HAN and a storable fuel candidate, offering variable thrust with a high degree of mission tailoring. Additionally, such system will be capable of rapid transients to enable pulsed propulsion for tactical… More

High Performance Cooling Methods for Liquid Rocket Engines

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Tedi Ohanian, CEO/Chief Technical Officer – (805) 529-3800
Award Amount: $149,974.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: To meet the goals for future generation Air Force LOX/Hydrocarbon booster engines, improvements must be made in performance, operability, reusability, reliability, and cost. To date, operational LOX/hydrocarbon engines have used the fuel as the thrust chamber assembly (TCA) regenerative… More
