Abstract:

The investigation identifies patterns of innovation in the technology of liquid propellant rocket engines LPRE. Quantitative methods are used to gain an understanding of the innovative process based on large-sample statistics. Specifically, it seeks to determine the manner and extent in which LPRE technology innovation has evolved the degree to which innovations have diffused and the factors of the environment within which innovation has taken place. The two principal tools used are a modeling of the functional and structural characteristics of LPRE to permit quantitative identification of specific innovations, and a mapping process which traces innovative diffusion through specific communication channels.
