Russia Develops Hypersonic Fuel Formula
Russia has developed a unique fuel formula that will help the aircraft exceed a speed of Mach 5. This was stated by Deputy Defence Minister, General Dmitry Bulgakov on Tuesday. The Deputy Defence Minister also said that Russia was developing fuel for hypersonic aircraft.
“The formula has been created and the energy accumulated in this fuel will help our aircraft exceed a speed of Mach 5,” Mr. Bulgakov said.
The Deputy Defence Minister also told reporters about the development of fuel for a new generation of long-range cruise missiles for the Russian Air Force and Navy. This work is being performed by the 25th State Research Institute of Chemmotology. The specialists of this institute have used aluminum nanoparticles to develop a number of rocket fuel components with a density and energy capacity increased by almost 20%. Besides, the institute continues developing raw materials alternative to oil. In particular, the institute is testing a sample of synthetic oil and aviation fuel based on natural gas.
