Low Energy Electronic Ignition System for NOFBX Thrusters

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Low Energy Electronic Ignition System for NOFBX Thrusters
We propose to develop a miniature, low RF noise ignition module for NOFBX propulsion systems. This ignition module is designed utilizing unique properties of the NOFBX propellant to enable a potential 2-3 order magnitude reduction in spark ignition energy, voltage, current, and power under a very special set of condition realized only in an NOFBX combustion chamber.
