Category of engines.

Subtopics

R-13 engine Dushkin Nitric acid/Solid hybrid rocket engine. Out of Production. Developed in the late 1950s by OKB Dushkin. It was a combined (powder+liquid) engine, characterized by a new technical approach conceived by Dushkin in the prewar design of the KRD-604.

Dolphin American sea-launched test vehicle. The Dolphin hybrid rocket (solid fuel and liquid oxygen oxidizer) was built by Starstruck (formerly ARC Technology), a predecessor to AMROC. The Dolphin included not only innovative propulsion technology but was also launched from a floating launch canister at sea. One test article of the hybrid was successfully launched in the summer of 1984. But the project was backed entirely with private funds and when backing for further development was not forthcoming, the project folded.

Falcon SLV-1 Michoud LOx/Solid hybrid rocket engine. First stage. Study 2005. Part of the USAF FALCON program to assess hybrid propulsion applications for a responsive small launch vehicle.

Falcon SLV-2 Michoud hybrid rocket LOx/Solid engine. Upper stages. Study 2005. Part of the USAF FALCON program to assess hybrid propulsion applications for a responsive small launch vehicle.

Hyperion engine eAc hybrid N2O/Solid rocket engine.
