Improved rocket nozzle designs for vehicles with nozzles embedded in or protruding from surfaces remote from the desired thrust axis. The nozzle configurations are for rocket vehicles where the nozzles are not located at the optimal thrust axis of the vehicle. Two examples include nozzles located on the forward end of the vehicle (also called tractor nozzles) and attitude control nozzles located on the periphery of the vehicle. More particularly, the disclosed nozzle shapes enhance the axial thrusts and/or maneuver torques on the vehicle. These unconvent...
1. A vehicle, comprising; a payload;tractor rocket motors that are not installed at the base of the vehicle effective to generate thrust along a direction of flight of said vehicle;each tractor rocket motor having a nozzle at a forward end of the vehicle protruding from an exterior wall and angularly disposed towards said base with an aft surface of said tractor rocket motor adjacent to said exterior wall of said vehicle and an opposing fore surface of said tractor rocket motor radially outward of said aft surface, said aft surface extending toward said ...
