Flight research has been conducted on an aerospike rocket nozzle using high power solid rockets. Two aerospike rockets and one conventional rocket were flown successfully to supersonic speeds, providing the first known set of transonic flight performance data for aerospike rockets. This paper describes the rockets, solid rocket motors, nozzles, and rocket instrumentation system. Flight test results are also discussed and compared with ground test results. Flight data show that all of the… Expand
