Low Cost Upper Stage (LCUS) Propulsion

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Low Cost Upper Stage (LCUS) Propulsion
The LCUSP will demonstrate the ability to produce a low cost upper stage-class propulsion system using additive manufacturing technologies. LCUSP will do this by (1) developing a copper alloy additive manufacturing design process, (2) developing a new Nickel Jacket additive manufacture/application process, (3) additive manufacture a 25K-class regenerative chamber/nozzle, (4) testing components and then chamber/nozzle system in a hot fire resistance test.
