A hybrid rocket motor
gives a lot of power quickly.
In May, Virgin Galactic and their partners Scaled Composites switched to an alternative type of fuel for the hybrid rocket motor
SS2's propulsion system has been developed by Sierra Nevada Corp and is the world's largest operational hybrid rocket motor
25 lakh) for work on a hybrid rocket motor
for its suborbital Hermes spaceplane.
Hampson has been charged with creating a steel and alloy structure to hold the EJ200 engine, the hybrid rocket motor
, the peroxide tank, the Formula One engine used as a fuel pump, the parachute mechanism and the speed brake.
Built from lightweight carbon composite materials and powered by a hybrid rocket motor
, SS2 is based on the X-Prize-winning SpaceShipOne concept - a rocket plane that is lifted initially by a carrier vehicle before blasting skywards.
SpaceShipTwo, built from lightweight composite materials and powered by a hybrid rocket motor
, is similar to its prototype cousin with three exceptions.
The vehicle will use the combined power of a hybrid rocket motor
and two RAF EJ200 jet engines (the type currently used on the Eurofighter Typhoon).
To achieve Green's target of 1,000mph in the Bloodhound Project, the vehicle uses a jet engine from the Eurofighter Typhoon for the initial thrust, followed by an impulse from a hybrid rocket motor
The Norwegian ammunition systems and rocket propulsion developer Nammo AS revealed on Tuesday (13 September) that its subsidiary Nammo Raufoss AS had carried out a first static test firing of a full-scale hybrid rocket motor
Another advance is the nonexplosive hybrid rocket motor
designed to power SpaceShipOne, which Rutan called practically bulletproof.
This is another key win for SpaceDev, as we move our hybrid rocket motor
technology from R&D toward a variety of SpaceDev products that can produce revenues," says Jim Benson, chairman and CEO of SpaceDev.
