AMDC supports hot-fire test campaigns of rocket engines to extend the database of rocket exhaust phenomena and emissions. This allows to create a scientific base to improve the understanding of the effects the rocket engines have on the environment. Combining actual measurements with theoretical simulations will increase the accuracy of predictions on environmental stress by rocket tests and launches. Considering the current developments in the New Space arena, an improved understanding of this problem is becoming increasingly relevant.
WARR Ex-3 Hot-Fire Campaign 2020
The next step in this task was the support and scientific survey of the hot-fire tests of Munich WARR student group’s WARR Ex-3 hybrid rocket engine in October 2020.
