Abstract:

This presentation covered an overview of AFRLs rocket propulsion laboratory and discussed advanced chemical propulsion for spacecraft. It discussed hydrazine, state-of-the-art rocket fuel, hydrazines and flammability, energetic ionic liquids, chemical propellant development, hydrazine replacement monopropellant objectives, relevant monopropellant properties, AF-M1028A monopropellant composition and physical properties, thruster tests of AF-M1028A, ionic liquids as explosives, predictive toxicology, predictive methods expected payoff. AFRL continues efforts in energetic ionic liquids IL research, because IL-based propellants can convey unique capabilities, and energetic ILs have intriguing explosive properties. IL material properties promise significantly improved performance and reduced toxicity compared to hydrazine fuels.
