Example text

However, it does experience a low-frequency chugging-type behavior that can be aggravated by inadequate vaporization of a liquid oxidizer in the precombustion chamber. This is not a fundamental objection because all rocket and airbreathing engines have experienced instability at some time in their development, but it does need more research for acceptable resolution. In contrast to the solid and liquid rocket development programs, the hybrid has received only a fraction of the investment made with the other engines.

Except for the component failure, the motor performance was as predicted for the initial period and was the largest hybrid vehicle flown, despite its short duration. The company was subsequently reorganized in 1985 and renamed AMROC under a new sponsor. The company was founded on the belief that a nonexplosive, throttleable and low-cost manufacturing system could translate to a profitable, competitive commercial launch vehicle. With private funding, AMROC proceeded to build a series of motors at vacuum thrust levels between 5000 lb and 260,000 lb based on LOX/HTPB propellants.
