T0086 Saturated Fluid Pistonless Pump Technology Demonstrator

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

T0086 Saturated Fluid Pistonless Pump Technology Demonstrator

Program start date is on hold until Space Act Agreement is signed.  Placeholder date of January 2014 is used as placeholder.

This study is aimed at increasing the readiness level of pistonless pump technology. Proposed is the testing of a full capability pistonless pump test apparatus on a commercial suborbital vehicle. The proposed working fluid will be a simulated cryogen, carbonated water, which exhibits many of the difficulties encountered when pumping a cryogenic propellant near saturation, without problems associated with safety.
