Advancements in Rotating Detonation Engine Technology: A Perspective

Pawel Stezycki

This is a short survey of research conducted in Poland on development of the Rotating Detonation Engines (RDE). Basic research was conducted at the Institute of Heat Engineering of the Warsaw University of Technology (WUT) and then applied research at the Institute of Aviation (IoA) (since 2019 part of Lukasiewiewicz Network). The studies were also carried out in cooperation with international partners and led to develop many laboratory scale RDE and first World’s rocket powered by RDE.
