Interagency Propulsion Committee
The principal objectives of the Subcommittee are:
The Subcommittee's scope is limited to promoting technical exchange and addressing problems associated with the application of advanced composite materials, including carbon-carbon, ceramic matrix, and carbon phenolic composites, and other advanced materials, as applied to solid rocket nozzles and their components, nozzle-based propulsion control systems; and related technology developments for liquid and electric propulsion. Its areas of interest are: materials and material properties; structural analysis and modeling; materials processing; quality assurance and control of composite exit cones and other nozzle components through nondestructive evaluation; nozzle design, testing, and evaluation; and thrust vector control/actuation technology.
