  1. Storable Clean Ethane/ethylene Nitrous Engine (SCENE)

    SBC: PIONEER ASTRONAUTICS            Topic: MDA18T005

    he Storable Clean Ethane-ethylene Nitrous Engine (SCENE) is a proposed technology designed to provide upper stages and spacecraft with non-toxic, liquid, non-cryogenic, high-performance propulsion with an Isp on the order of 300 seconds. The propellant components are stored as liquids under their saturated vapor pressures. With the SCENE, nitrous oxide is used as an autogenously pressurized oxidiz ...
