  10. Adv Tech for Minimization of Deflagration to Detonation Transition Distance in PDE Applications

    SBC: Adroit Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Adroit Systems Inc. (ASI) proposes to develop an innovative concept which reduces the required volume of predetonator mixture in pulse detonation engines (PDEs). The propulsive efficiency of the PDE hinges on the ability to quickly initiate a detonation in a fuel/air mixture. Since most fuel/air mixtures are difficult to detonate, an easily detonable predetonator mixture is typically ...
