The effort in constructing a paste-propellant rocket propulsion system in Ukraine is described. Construction features for keeping flame from penetrating to the fuel supply system and maintaining combustion are considered. A formula is proposed for calculating the consumption of the propelland which moves through a spinneret with a conical ring-type slot. The paste-propellant rocket propulsion system is shown theoretically as well as experimentally to be more efficient in the thrust control as compared to other rocket propulsion systems.
