Aerojet Rocketdyne to Mature Rotating Detonation Engine Technology in Cooperation with Department of Energy
The RDE agreement, valued at
"Aerojet Rocketdyne provides innovative solutions for not only defense and space industry applications, but also to help mature RDE technology for use in the energy industry through the
The technology will enable combined cycle efficiency gains by capturing the increased performance of pressure gain combustion within the combustion assembly, and reducing the flow variations resulting from RDE combustion to levels that are acceptable to upstream compressors and downstream turbines.
This follow-on agreement builds upon the success of an initial Phase I program, completed by
"We are excited about this opportunity to advance the state-of-the-art in rotating detonation engine technology, which could enable significant gains in efficiency across a wide operating range," said
