Low Cost Upper Stage for Affordable Nano/Micro Launch, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

TGV Rockets, Inc., in partnership with the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, proposes to develop a unique Low-Cost Upper Stage for Affordable Nano/Micro Launch. The stage will make use of a novel eutectic fuel blend that is thermally compatible with liquid-oxygen, unique low-cost lightweight avionics, and simple common-wall tanks. The projected production cost of the completed upper stage is approximately $100,000. TGV will build upon this technology to produce the system capability to launch 100 Lbs. to LEO for $1 Million.
