Aerospace Technique for Micro-machining Glass Enables Medical Advances

In the mid-1990s, when Dr. Henry Helvajian and his colleagues began experimenting with a photosensitive ceramic-glass compound, they had no idea that it would be the jumping off point for a technology that helps save the lives of patients with terminal diseases. A process developed at Aerospace for space applications found its way into medicine. […]  More »

Invention Allows Shorter Rocket Engine Bursts

Aerospace senior scientist Brian Brady has received a U.S. patent on a device that allows rocket engines to provide smaller pulses of thrust and to use more kinds of fuels. The patent, No. 7,958,719 B2, is titled “Noncircular Transient Fluid Fuel Injector Control Channels.” According to Brady, rocket engines are designed to operate within a […]  More »
