Washington, March 27 ( ANI ): Researchers have engineered a bacterium to synthesize pinene, a hydrocarbon produced by trees that could potentially replace high-energy fuels, such as JP-10, in missiles and other aerospace applications.
Tests recently conducted at APL's Avery Advanced Technology Development Laboratory demonstrated for the first time that pure JP-10 liquid hydrocarbon fuel--like that burned in Tomahawk cruise missiles--can be injected and burned successfully in the kind of supersonic combustion engine required to power a hypersonic missile.
For lack of old price comparatives in the announcement, it is hard to offer any comment about JP-4 and JP-10.
