A preferred apparatus for generating power from a non-combustive chemical reaction with the power being sufficient to enable motion of the apparatus includes a reaction chamber containing a catalyst that is configured to receive monopropellant fuel. The catalyst is chemically reactive with the monopropellant fuel so that, in response to a fuel metering device providing the fuel to the reaction chamber, a chemical reaction occurs which produces heat and gas. Additionally, a reciprocating motion-producing mechanism is provided that is configured to generat...
1. A system for producing power through a noncombustive catalytic reaction and utilizing the power for propelling an apparatus, said system comprising:means for controllably metering a monopropellant fuel into a reaction chamber, the reaction chamber having a catalyst disposed therein such that a chemical reaction between the monopropellant fuel and the catalyst produces heat and gas; means for utilizing at least a portion of the heat and gas to produce reciprocating motion; means for transmitting the reciprocating motion to a propulsor such that the pro...
