In Science and Space: The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has successfully tested a hybrid engine that could pave the way for new propulsion systems for future rockets.

This trial was supported by ISRO’s Liquid Propulsion Systems Center (LPSC).

The 30kN hybrid motor tested Tuesday at the ISRO Propulsion Facility (IPRC) in Mahendragiri, Tamil Nadu, is scalable and stackable, the Bengaluru-based space agency said.

The engine used hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (HTPB) as fuel and liquid oxygen (LOX) as oxidant.
Hybrid engines have been found to use solid fuel and liquid oxidizers, as opposed to solid-solid or liquid-liquid combinations. “Today (Tuesday)’s test of the hybrid engine equivalent to a 30 kN flight demonstrated the intended 15 seconds of ignition and sustained combustion. Engine performance was satisfactory,” ISRO said in a statement.
