The 5.6-metre-long HSTDV uses a scramjet engine that's located under its mid-body section, with the aft area acting as part of the exhaust nozzle. A scramjet engine is essentially a modified ramjet engine that's designed to work more efficiently in speeds beyond Mach 5.
They were installing exhaust nozzle liners onto the engine on the aircraft.
The hot gases discharge through the exhaust nozzle (visible as glowing flame in figure).
The shape of the spectrum reflects the fact that the eddies that comprise the turbulent mixing process vary considerably, increasing in size progressively downstream of the exhaust nozzle and decaying in intensity as the average exhaust velocity falls and the mixing becomes complete.
The leak, caused by a hairline fracture in the variable exhaust nozzle fuel pump, was a serious discrepancy which could have led to an in-flight engine fire if fuel had continued to spill onto and into the engine.
Evidence at the trial also revealed that from July 2003 to June 2005, Gowadia took six trips to the PRC to provide defense services in the form of design, test support and test data analysis of technologies for the purpose of assisting the PRC with a cruise missile system by developing a stealthy exhaust nozzle.

The hook and parts of the aircraft's variable exhaust nozzle assembly were severed from the aircraft.
Aerospace and defense company ATK (NYSE:ATK) announced today that its affiliate COI Ceramics Inc, headquartered in San Diego, California, has been awarded a contract by aircraft manufacturer Boeing (NYSE:BA) Research & Technology for the development and demonstration of a Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) exhaust nozzle.
It involved an exhaust nozzle that would evade infrared radar detection and US heat-seeking missiles.
When jet-engined commercial frights first started in the 1750's, aircraft were powered by turbojets - jet engines in which all thrust was provided by gases that went through the engine from inlet to exhaust nozzle, exiting in a single high velocity jet.
In addition to these defense applications, HSTAR LVDT position sensors can be used to monitor moving surfaces such as the skew of flaps of a Boeing 777, the exhaust nozzle of an F-14 as well as the hydraulic reservoir of an F-22.
