Impulse of a rocket-type combustion chamber is achieved via pressure build-up in a combustion chamber and releasing via a narrow nozzle.
Impulse augmentation is achieved via placing a concentrated mass (weight, gel, powder) at the exit of the combustion chamber to a tube which replaces the nozzle. A larger thrust is achieved this way for the same amount of propellent.
- Less propellent may be used for the same impulse
Applications and Opportunities
- Systems that require large impulses from relatively small amount of propellant
- Maneuvering missiles and satellites
