The Bombardier Beetle Rocks!

The PulCheR (Pulsed Chemical Rocket with Green High Performance Propellants) project, funded by the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement n°313271, officially started as of January 1st, 2013.

PulCheR is a new propulsion concept in which the propellants are fed in the combustion chamber at low pressure and the thrust is generated by means of high frequency pulses, reproducing the defence mechanism of a notable insect: the bombardier beetle.
