Abstract:

Means for generating an inert enveloping gas for surrounding the exhaust plume of a rocket motor are disclosed along with how the enveloping gas serves to prevent the adverse interaction between the rocket motor exhaust plume and the on-board sensors when the rocket motor is operating in exoatmospheric environments. Means for generating an inert enveloping gas utilizes a combination of a T-tube rocket motor and a donut of a chemical which is a gas generant selected from hydrazine bisborane, covalent azides, tetracene, or fluorocarbon-nitroamine.
