The purpose of the Hyb-B test series is to develop a dependable ignition system for a hybrid rocket motor.
Test Hyb-B-8 provided the best result and we’ll be moving to the next step of developing a hybrid rocket ignition system based on these results.
Setup and test the spark gap igniter using 5Vand 3A.
Test the spark gap igniter with magnesium at 5Vand 3A.
Test the spark gap igniter with black powder type #1 at 5V and 3A.
Test the spark gap igniter with black powder type #2 at 5V and 3A.
Test the spark gap igniter with an increased amount of type #2 black powder than was used in test Hyb-B-7 and still applying 5V and 3A.
