Potential NASA Commercial Applications: While applications for NASA programs are manifold, the potential for Non-NASA applications appears to offer even greater potential. The rapid growth of the nascent commercial space sector will continue to expand in the coming decades. This industry can be even more demanding in terms of technological advancement, and for an even wider range of propulsion applications. Furthermore, the development schedule for commercial applications will be much shorter. For these reasons, we believe that the development of our oxygen/methane thruster will put us in a good position to meet the needs of the commercial sector. Example applications include RCS propulsion for commercial-off-the-shelf systems, already on the drawing boards, RCS for private space structures, such as Bigelow's Orbiting Space Structures, as discussed in foregoing section 7, as well as others that are just now being conceptualized.
