An air-breathing pulse-detonation engine powered by microwave energy beaming, “Microwave Rocket” is considered as a future mass transportation system to space. A key to realize Microwave Rocket is to achieve high air-breathing performance. We are now developing the system using side-wall reed valves which is expected to minimize ventilation(More)
By focusing a high-power millimeter wave beam generated by a 170GHz gyrotron, a breakdown occurred and a shock wave was driven by plasma heated by following microwave energy. The shock wave and the plasma around a focal point of a parabolic thruster were visualized by a shadowgraph method, and a transition of structures between the shock wave and the plasma(More)
