A New Electric Propulsion Concept Based on Pseudospark Discharges

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: University of Southern California
Principal Investigator: Douglas VanGilder, Project Manager
Award Amount: $99,172.00
RI Contact: Gundersen, Martin A
Abstract:
It is proposed to develop a space propulsion concept based on the physics of pseudospark discharges. The device will be based on a multi-gap pseudospark device with a closed anode. The pseudospark is characterized by a transient phase, where high-intensityare created, and a "super-dense" glow… More

All-Nitrogen or High-Nitrogen Compounds as High Energy Density Materials

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: University of Southern California
Principal Investigator: Karl O. Christe, Senior Staff Advisor
Award Amount: $99,950.00
RI Contact: Karl O. Christe
Abstract:
During Phase I of the proposed program, ERC-Incorporated proposes to identify novel promising polynitrogen candidates by means of theoretical calculations. Furthermore, preliminary tests will be carried out to explore the feasibility of synthesizing the most promising candidates. High-nitrogen… More
