As a result of the theoretical studies performed under the previous contract cited above, pressurization by means of hot combustion gases was selected for investigation. From the earlier work, a liquid bipropellant gas generator utilizing nitrogen tetroxide N2O4 and unsymmetrical dimethylhydrazine UDMH as oxidizer and fuel, respectively, was chosen as being respresentative of a class of controllable-output hot gas pressure sources. An alternative approach to a source of pressurization and counterrecoil thrust was a solid-propellant rocket with a coolant-diluent bed between the rocket and the flamethrower fuel tank. This configuration is being evaluated concurrently with the liquid bipropellant system. Author
