Aerospike Development Program

Aerospike nozzles are designed to be altitude compensating and self adjust the expansion ratio making them extremely useful for ground-launched sounding rockets. This feature is specifically useful for long burn hybrid rocket applications. Several design verification tests have occurred using short burn solid propellants, with the goal of applying the technology to the long burn Hybrid motors.
