Developed in 1954 for the US Navy, the helicopter uses peroxide as fuel and is unique in that it is strapped onto the pilot. Instead of an engine, the aircraft is powered by rockets on each end of the main rotor; pressurized Nitrogen would act as the catalyst for the Hydrogen Peroxide [Ref 316]. The purpose of its tail rotor is to provide addition steering control.
