Abstract

Projects include:

Liquids Division: Two research liquid engines one producing 500 pounds(Project Aquila) of thrust and the second producing 1500 pounds(Project Concordia) of thrust. Both will be test fired at the Prescott campus to validate our heat transfer analysis and CFD models.

Hybrids Division:Two research hybrid motors (Project Vulcan and Project Harpy) and two rocket stability project. Both hybrid engines will be used to validate our proprietary combustion analysis programs. Project Harpy will be the single largest Hybrid motor ever tested by Embry-Riddle with construction beginning in Early 2020.

Project Spectre: An actively stabilized rocket with goal of competing in the experimental 30,000 ft class at White Sands missile range.

Project Aether: A research project providing the foundation for propulsive rocket stability (reaction control surfaces).

Data and Controls: These projects provide data acquisition for our test fires and safe remote control of our engines.
