Improving Liquid Propulsion Testing Reliability and Safety

For students, liquid propulsion research is often inaccessible due to the logistical and safety challenges it poses. The development of a spark-initiated torch ignitor for use in propulsion testing mitigates these concerns by providing researchers with a fail-safe in the case of system failure. In addition, the ignitor provides increased testing reliability with a high-power, automated start sequence. In the future, this ignitor will be integrated in liquid propulsion engines to aid in testing and operation.
