Award List:

Combustion-Stability Test Bed for Liquid-Oxygen, Hybrid Motors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Kirk Flittie
Award Amount: $69,538.00
Abstract:
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… More

Nitrous-Oxide Hybrid-Rocket System Testing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: George Whittinghill
Award Amount: $69,538.00

Nitrous-Oxide Hybrid-Rocket System Testing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: George Whittinghill
Award Amount: $595,033.00
Abstract:
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… More
