United States Air Force Grants $1 Million to Zolo Technologies, Inc. for Development of In-flight Combustion Measurement System

Posted on: Thursday, February 1st, 2007

The Unites States Air Force’s Arnold Engineering Development Center has granted Zolo Technologies $1 million for the development of in-flight combustion measurement of SCRAMJETs. This innovative technology will provide tracking of engine efficiency and enable the reduction of harmful emissions during flight.

Zolo Technologies will build and support the flight testing of two series of wavelength- multiplexed tunable diode laser sensors designed to measure inside the SCRAMJET engine during flight. The system will measure temperature, density and velocity as well as O2, CO, CO2, and H2O simultaneously in the engine of a SCRAMJET-powered vehicle.
