A high performance, electric pump-fed LOX / RP propulsion system, Phase II

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

To-date, the realization of small-scale, high-performance liquid bipropellant rocket engines has largely been limited by the inability to operate at high chamber pressures in a regeneratively-cooled environment using on-board pumps for propellant pressurization. Ventions seeks to fulfill this critical need by using a novel fabrication scheme that builds on previously-demonstrated technologies (under DARPA and NASA sponsored efforts) to design, fabricate and hot-fire test a pump-fed, 3,000lbf LOX/RP propulsion system.
