Abstract
The objective of the proposed research and development effort is to demonstrate the feasibility of an innovative approach to solid rocket motor propulsion with advanced energy management technology. In this proposal, Exquadrum presents a highly flexible and adaptable approach to the control of rocket motors. This technology can be applied to applications ranging from attitude control systems to booster stages. The resulting propulsion systems can be made throttleable and capable of multiple cycles of extinguishment and restart. The technology will be experimentally demonstrated during the proposed research program.
