astra sanskrit: weapon is an all weather beyond-visual-range air-to-air missile developed by the defence research and development organisation, india.it is the first air-to-air missile developed by india. it features mid-course inertial guidance with terminal active radar homing. astra is designed to be capable of engaging targets at varying range and altitudes allowing for engagement of .
crusher attempts to warn riker that during the warp test, the traveler appeared to 'phase', drifting in and out of reality, but riker dismisses him without listening. however, after kosinski begins the second test, crusher and riker both observe the traveler again drifting out, appearing more tired.
both were believed to be launch failures. however, astra stated that both were successful and the second one was 'shorter than planned'. astra spent 2019 designing and building rocket 3.0 integrating propulsion systems, avionics, and other pressurization/plumbing components into a high-performance electric pump-fed orbital launch vehicle.

the variable specific impulse magnetoplasma rocket vasimr is an electrothermal thruster under development for possible use in spacecraft propulsion.it uses radio waves to ionize and heat an inert propellant, then a magnetic field to accelerate the resulting plasma, generating thrust.it is a plasma propulsion engine, one of several types of spacecraft electric propulsion systems.
astra, inc., formerly known as ventions llc, is a launch vehicle company based in alameda, california, that develops pump-fed, liquid bipropellant propulsion engines for darpa and nasa. astra is a technology provider for darpa's airborne launch assist space access alasa program, and worked on the small air launch vehicle to orbit salvo program, a pathfinder air-launched vehicle for .
a pulse detonation engine pde is a type of propulsion system that uses detonation waves to combust the fuel and oxidizer mixture. the engine is pulsed because the mixture must be renewed in the combustion chamber between each detonation wave and the next. theoretically, a pde can operate from subsonic up to a hypersonic flight speed of roughly mach 5. an ideal pde design can have a .
