High Regression Rate Hybrid Rocket Fuel Grains with Helical Port Structures Utah State University is seeking a party interested in licensing a method to increase the regression rate of hybrid rocket fuel. By increasing regression rates, rockets experience greater stability, less nozzle erosion, and longer motor duty cycles. Potential fields of interest include both government and private organizations in the Space and Mili...

Power Efficient Restart-Capable Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene Arc Ignitor for Hybrid Rockets Utah State University is seeking a party interested in licensing an ignitor for hybrid rockets. This specific system has the ability to provide the simplicity and reliability of monopropellant systems, but with the strength of a bi-propellant ignitor. This system may be restarted hundreds of times using non-hazardous materials. Potential fields of ...
