MISSILE ENGINEERING

High Energy Solid Fuels May Be Hybrids

Fuel chemists have broken through the bond energy limitations of the conventional CHON (carbon-hydrogen-oxygen-nitrogen) systems and, for the first time since World War II, solid rocket propellants show signs of making significant gains in energy content.

Decompression Dangers in Space Viewed

Los Angeles—Hypoxia will be the greatest danger in decompression in biosatellites, and provisions must be made for supplying the biologic passenger (man or animal) with sufficient oxygen to survive, Eugene Konecci of Douglas Aircraft’s Tulsa Division told the American Rocket Society.

AVIONICS

Monitor Designed to Aid Jet Takeoffs

Washington—Takeoff monitor, a new type avionic device which automatically warns a pilot when his aircraft is failing to “make good” during takeoff run, begins flight tests this month. Device, which promises to reduce hazards and uncertainties of jet takeoffs, was recommended for use in jetliners by recent International Air Transport Assn, technical conference in Miami.

Dryden Foresees Nasa-industry Teams

On Jan. 27 of this year I said that in my opinion it was imperative, for the peace and welfare of the world, that the U. S. should lead in the exploration of space, and that the goal of our national space program should be the development of manned satellites and the travel of man to the moon and the nearby planets.

BUSINESS FLYING

Reading Display Keyed to Business Flying

Reading, Pa.—Safety hints on light twin flying, discussions of new de-icing systems specifically designed to increase lightplane all-weather capabilities and planned policy changes in Civil Aeronautics Administration’s handling of supplemental type certificates were the main points of a recent big turnout here of business flyers for Reading Aviation Services’ Ninth Annual Maintenance and Operations Meeting.

Letters

The claim is made by Mr. Casad in your May 19 issue (p. 114): “Accuracy of statement is of no concern to him (the salesman), and doubt is something to be counteracted by more extravagant claims.” This is a generalization based on limited observation—probably at carnival sideshows or on TV screens.

Airline Costs Soar in New Idlewild Unit

New York—Idlewild’s $150 million “terminal city” development now in progress will involve a way of life as different economically as it will be operationally for most of the 39 international and domestic airlines who serve the 10-yr.-old airport.
