A High-Payload Fraction, Pump-Fed, 2-Stage Nano Launch Vehicle, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

A High-Payload Fraction, Pump-Fed, 2-Stage Nano Launch Vehicle, Phase I
Ventions proposes the development of a pump-fed, 2-stage nano launch vehicle for low-cost on-demand placement of cube and nano-satellites into LEO. The proposed vehicle uses high T/W and high Isp pump-fed engines that operate at high chamber pressures without the weight penalty of high pressure tanks, thereby realizing payload fractions in the 1-2% range.
