Title: Low Energy Electronic Ignition System for NOFBX Thrusters
Agency: NASA
Contract: NNX12CD56P
Award Amount: $124,958.00
 

Abstract:

We propose to develop a miniature, low RF noise ignition module for NOFBX propulsion systems. This ignition module is designed utilizing unique properties of the NOFBX propellant to enable a potential 2-3 order magnitude reduction in spark ignition energy, voltage, current, and power under a very special set of condition realized only in an NOFBX combustion chamber.
