The applications for these ionic liquid fuels in the military and civilian sectors exceed even the abundant NASA applications. These storable non-toxic fuels are suitable for many kinds of tactical systems including missiles, ballistic defense systems, and satellites. Many opportunities exist in all branches of the military.
Because of their good performance and low toxicity, these storable fuels will be suitable for a number of NASA propulsion applications. These new fuels could be used in reaction control systems for NASA's in-space science missions, lunar missions, satellites, or any future manned flights.
