Abstract:

The patent relates to a nozzle having four blades extending radially therein about the inner periphery thereof. Each blade reciprocates radially with respect to the axis of the nozzle to control the cross-sectional area of the nozzle and thereby serves as a thrust mass control. The blades are also independently capable of rotating motion to form a thrust vector control in any plane.
