Abstract

Mercury Propulsion is an undergraduate engineering team whose members hold different majors as offered from the College of Engineering at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott, Arizona. The team is tasked to design, build, instrument, and test a liquid rocket engine utilizing an optional Ejector Thrust Augmentation System (ETAS). The engine will burn liquid oxygen and ethanol as its propellants and be designed to produce 200 lb of thrust without augmentation. The end goal of the project is to produce thrust data from two five-second hot-fire tests; one with and one without the ETAS installed.
