  1. LASER PROPULSION THRUSTERS

    SBC: Combustion Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    LASER ROCKET PROPULSION RESEARCH RECENTLY HAS DEMONSTRATED SUBSTANTIALPOTENTIAL FOR THE CONVERSION OF HIGH POWER LASER ENERGY INTO THERMAL PROPULSIVE ENERGY, USING EITHER CONTINUOUS OR PULSED MODE LASER SOURCES. IT IS NOW POSSIBLE FOR THE FIRST TIME TO DEVELOP PROTOTYPE DESIGNS FOR ACTUAL LASER PROPULSION THRUSTERS THAT CAN BE BUILT AND TESTED AT REALISTIC LASER POWERS. TO ACCOMPLISH THIS, PREVIOU ...

  5. MICROSTACK INSULATOR FOR HIGH VOLTAGE PULSED SYSTEMS

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    POLYMERIC OR CERAMIC INSULATORS CONVENTIONALLY ARE BEING USED IN HIGH VOLTAGE PULSED SYSTEMS. NEW APPROACHES ARE NEEDED THAT WOULD REDUCE INSULATORS RING THICKNESSES AND INCREASE CORRESPONDING GRADING RINGS FLASHOVER VOLTAGE. SUCH AN APPROACH WOULD POSSESS IN COMPARISON TO CONVENTIONAL INSULATORS: HIGHER SURFACE FLASHOVER FIELD STRENGTH; SMALLER PHYSICAL DIMENSIONS FOR EQUIVALENT VOLTAGE HOLDOFF; ...

  9. Heat-Exchanger for High Specific Impulse Maneuvering

    SBC: Combustion Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Strategic defense missions place a premium on the performance capabilities of onboard propulsion systems. An innovative technique for producing very high impulse at excellent thrust-to-weight ratios is known as laser-powered heat-exchanger propulsion. A remotely stationed high power laser is used to heat a propellent gas within a rocket engine, and the heated gas is exhausted to generate thrust at ...
