How It Works
A Rocket Motor Igniter provides the necessary heat source to ignite rocket engines. This igniter utilizes an electrical input stimulus that ignites an Electro-Explosive Device (EED), which in turn ignites a propellant grain. The propellant grain is designed to sustain a controlled burn to emit the necessary heat and hot particles for sufficient time to reliably ignite a rocket motor. We can tailor the burn duration to meet performance specification requirements, or they can be customized to burn for a specified period of time, based on the application. We have manufactured millions of igniters which have proven highly effective in a diverse set of applications.
