What is PDE ?
A pulse detonation engine (PDE) is a type of propulsion system that uses detonation waves to combust the fuel and oxidizer mixture. Can operate from subsonic up to a hypersonic flight speed of roughly Mach 5 and have a thermodynamic efficiency higher than other designs like turbojets and turbofans.
PDE have a thermodynamic efficiency higher than other designs like turbojets and turbofans so can lower cost of airplane traffic and access to outer space.
Relatively easily, upgrade old PJE with new of the shelf technology and studies, for example using them like main or attaching them on outer shell of airplanes and rockets like secondary propulsion system..
