You can see the thermodynamic cycle of the first engine Lundet-7, which Detonation Space continues to test.
To go to Mars, to tour the world with a single tank of fuel, to travel thousands of kilometers in minutes, to explore planets, to increase our presence in the skies are all on our horizon.
In conventional rocket engines, the combustion rate is at subsonic speeds. In our engines, combustion takes place at supersonic speeds. As a result of the thermodynamic gain here, satellites that can be carried with two rockets can be carried with a single rocket.
The distance reached with a single tank of fuel can be doubled. Thanks to the lower fuel consumption of our engines, much longer distances can be reached. In space missions, it can both reach farther and shorten the mission time.
Going faster means increased drag. Vehicle designs are changed to reduce drag force. However, this has a limit. As engine efficiency increases, the Thrust/Weight ratio increases and this limit increases. In this way, faster vehicles can be designed.
Passenger transport costs can be reduced. Thanks to our engines being lighter and having a pressure-recovery combustion chamber, the structural material weight can be reduced and passenger planes can carry more passengers.
We are very excited to announce that Detonation Space has been accepted into Starburst’s Aerospace Accelerator Program run with UCLA! We are very happy that being a part of this community will take our work to a higher level.
Starburst is a highly networked accelerator program that enables aerospace startups to commercialize their technologies and increase the availability of their products, brings startups together with investors and institutions, and tries to reveal innovative technologies.

Thanks to its special interior design, the pre-detonator system we designed for Lundet-7, which can create detonation using very small volumes of kerosene/oxygen, successfully passed the tests. We were able to obtain the detonation wave at the calculated pressure. It can transmit detonation up to 100 Hz. The performance data is pretty fascinating.
