Abstract

Detonation engines exert various characteristics and high propulsion performance depending on their operation modes. Our group has conducted the demonstration of the integrated RDE/PDE system (Detonation Engine System, DES) in outer-space environment using a sounding rocket named S-520-31 operated by Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. This paper introduces the development history of DES from main integrity evaluations of preflight model to the outer-space demonstration of flight model.
