Faster, Longer-Range Air-to-Air Missiles require new propulsion technologies to enhance engagement ranges against manoeuvring targets

Traditional missiles powered by rocket motors typically carry both fuel and oxidizer. An air-breathing ramjet missile can dispense with the separate oxidizer payload, reducing the size of a propulsion package.  Thanks to ramjets, smaller missiles use that space for other things, like a bigger warhead or more fuel. Ramjets, according to …

New Small and Micro UAVs propulsion concepts and technologies to enable security forces to scout out buildings for urban combat and counter terrorist operations.

A miniature UAV or small UAV (SUAV) is an unmanned aerial vehicle small enough to be man-portable. Miniature UAVs range from micro air vehicles (MAVs) that can be carried by an infantryman, to man-portable UAVs that can be carried and launched like an infantry man-portable air-defense system. The term is …
