Low Cost Upper Stage (LCUS) Propulsion

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

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) building a 25K-class regenerative chamber and nozzle, (3) testing components individually, and (3) demonstrating as a system in a hot fire resistance test.
