  • Publication number: 20220258874
    Abstract: A fuel tank comprises an interior wall, a sump, and a baffle that comprises a center fitting, a full-length containment petal, a partial-length containment petal, a dump tube. The full-length containment petal comprises a full-length side edge, extending radially outward from the center fitting. The partial-length containment petal comprises a partial-length side edge, extending radially outward from the center fitting. The dump tube is connected to the sump. The full-length side edge of the full-length containment petal is longer than the partial-length side edge of the partial-length containment petal. All of the partial-length side edge of the partial-length containment petal is attached to a linear portion of the full-length side edge of the full-length containment petal.

  • Patent number: 11338943
    Abstract: Concurrent rocket engine pre-conditioning and tank filling is disclosed. A disclosed example apparatus includes an inlet valve to supply a rocket propellant tank that is associated with a rocket engine with rocket propellant, and a flow director to direct at least a portion of a flow of the rocket propellant from the inlet valve to a chill line of the rocket engine to thermally condition the rocket engine as the rocket propellant tank is being filled with the rocket propellant.

  • Patent number: 10214286
    Abstract: A system and method for collecting test data from a unit under test (UUT) in a multi-gravity environment is disclosed. In one embodiment, the method comprises determining a desired accelerative load profile for the UUT, determining the commanded flight profile of a flight vehicle at least in part from the desired accelerative load profile and a predicted dynamic response of the flight vehicle having the UUT mounted thereto to the commanded flight profile, commanding the flight vehicle having the UUT mounted thereto to fly the determined flight profile, and collecting the test data using a data acquisition system communicatively coupled to the UUT.
