Development and Testing of a High Temperature N2O Decomposition Catalyst

Development and Testing of a High Temperature N2O Decomposition Catalyst Conference Paper Jul 2010 David Wickham Bradley Hitch B. Logsdon Present designs for scramjet-powered hypersonic missiles employ simple rocket boosters to bring them up to minimum operating speeds where a dual-mode ram/scram engine can take over. However, the low air pressures and temperatures and the […]

Design of a Catalytic Nitrous Oxide Decomposition Reactor

Design of a Catalytic Nitrous Oxide Decomposition Reactor Conference Paper Jul 2010 Bradley Hitch David Wickham In an SBIR Phase I project for AFRL, Reaction Systems completed the conceptual design of a scramjet missile ignition system using stored nitrous oxide for fuel atomization barbotage gas and/or a pilot ignition torch. Exothermically decomposing N2O to N2 […]
