Cylindrical supersonic exhaust diffuser, which utilizes the momentum of high temperature gas exhausted from nozzle, provides simple methods for obtaining stable and low pressure around the propulsion system. Hot zone on which exhausted gas from nozzle exit impinges directly should be cooled to avoid melting of diffuser. This paper describes method and result of subscale high altitude simulation test with water cooling. Subscale gas generator with solid propellant was used for hot gas source and tap water for coolant.
