Industry and Science Supporting Science and Commercialisation Business research, development and commercialisation Hydrocarbon fuel technology for hypersonic air breathing vehicles DEFENDTEX PTY LTD

Australia has a pioneering heritage and internationally recognised capability in the development and flight testing of hypersonic air breathing engines (scramjets). A major barrier to commercialising this technology is that Australian designed scramjet engines are exclusively hydrogen fuelled. Hydrocarbon fuel is required for commercial deployment due to challenges of hydrogen usage. This project solves this problem by developing new technology to fuel scramjets with liquid hydrocarbons.
