Supersonic Jet Design, Manufacturing, and Testing for an Advanced Technology Spacesuit Ejector 1999-01-1996

Two types of supersonic jets, long and short, were designed for an advanced technology spacesuit ejector. Previously, a sonic jet was used in the ejector to improve its performance by reducing oxygen flow through thejetin order to achieve the required suit circulation. The manufacturing of long and short supersonic jets was a challenge which was met successfully by the Miniature Manufacturing Laboratory at NASA/JSC. The jets were tested and their performance was compared with the sonic jet, and it was found that both jets showed improved performance by achieving higher ejector mass ratios.
