WSPC will produce hot gas TVC systems for Star and similar motors used to boost satellites into higher orbits. These motors currently do not have any TVC capability. With WSPC's new TVC systems, satellites would be boosted into more accurate orbits without spinning the satellite. Since the satellite is not spinning, it would not have to waste precious fuel de-spinning before beginning operation in orbit. This gives satellites a longer life in orbit before running out of station keeping fuel. WSPC will produce a variable throat nozzle for tactical missiles for thrust management. These nozzles will be cheaper, lighter and require less electrical power than conventional pintle nozzles. The requirement for less power will lighten the missile and permit more range or a larger warhead for a fixed range. WSPC will also market nozzles for ejector seats and small aircraft parachute deployment systems, which use solid rocket motors.
The primary NASA product is a hot gas thruster TVC system for planetary ascent vehicles that provide (1) higher mission reliability, (2) easier docking and rendezvous for returning samples to earth, (3) lower weight for higher payloads, (4) higher orbit insertion accuracy and (5) higher thrust vector angles. The technology can also be used for manned capsule escape systems with thrust management and thrust vector control. This would enable astronauts in a capsule to control the abort trajectory and land in a safe area. It could also be used for real time thrust control for solid rocket motors on planetary landers. Another application is thrust management of solid rocket boosters on small launch vehicles.
