Reaction Systems, Inc.

Years in Business

Combined Years of Research Experience

Reaction Systems, Inc. was formed in May 2005 for the sole purpose of developing leading edge technologies. Our goal is to invent new products or processes and turn them into real commercial products. We do this by conducting cutting-edge, high quality research, securing patents on our ideas, and cultivating commercialization partners in the industry.

Reaction Systems Projects

An Advanced Endothermic Fuel System for Hypersonic Propulsion

The development of weapons that can travel at hypersonic speeds is becoming a high priority to the US Air Force. A key technology needed for the continued development of these propulsion systems is the ability to cool the combustor by flowing fuel through channels machined in the walls.

Catalytic N2O Decomposition for Piloted Scramjet Ignition

Aircraft and missiles capable of rapid global strike and reconnaissance must fly at hypersonic speeds to achieve their performance goals. Future air-breathing hypersonic aircraft and missiles are expected to be powered by supersonic combustion ramjet (scramjet) engines.

Chemical Kinetic Pathway Effects in Turbulent Reacting Flows

The Army is very interested in accurate simulations of combustion in devices such as rockets and gas turbines, Otto and Diesel cycle IC engines, scramjet engines, rotating detonation engines, etc.

A Novel Thermal Method for Rapid Coke Measurement in Liquid Fueled Rocket Engines

The surfaces of rocket engines are exposed to high pressure combustion products at temperatures up to 6000?F. Regenerative cooling can cause coke to form on the heat exchanger surfaces.

Membrane for CO2 and H2O Control in Space Suits

The development of new, robust, lightweight life support systems is currently a crucial need for NASA in order to continue making advances in space exploration, particularly in the development of Lunar outposts.

A Supported Liquid Membrane System for Steady State CO2 Control in a Spacecraft Cabin

Reducing the allowable concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in spacecraft is a critical need for NASA.

Roadrunner Kinetics Custom Reduced Mechanisms for CFD

Scramjet engines, which likely will provide the next generation propulsion capability, operate at extremely high temperatures and air velocities, conditions that are very difficult to reach in a laboratory.

Custom Ceramic Choked Flow Venturis

Reaction Systems, Inc. has developed a new line of robust high temperature ceramic choked flow venturis for use in oxidizing and reducing atmospheres at temperatures up to 2700?F (1480?C).

“Supersonic flight is difficult, but hypersonic flight, flight in regimes of mach 5 and above, well it adds an exponential level of complexity to the problem.”?Reaction Systems, Inc. develops technology and components to make hypersonic flight a reality.
