Impulse detonation propulsion
The thrust at impulse propulsion is being generated discretely by air-blast doing by micro- explosion into combustion chamber. There are two types of the detonation propulsion: air-jet using atmosphere oxygen - PDE (Pulse Detonation Engine) and rocket - PDRE (Pulse Detonation Rocket Engine).
The power plants of the first type use hydro-carbon fuels and can operate effectively from take-off till rates М = 3 … 4 that is doing them especially attracted for the use at fighting winged rockets. The Pulse Detonation Rocket Engines are mean for space flights. The PDRE technology is one of several propulsion alternatives being developed by the LAJP to dramatically reduce the cost of space transportation.
