Alternative Hydrocarbon Propulsion for Nano / Micro Launch Vehicle Project

Metadata Updated: July 8, 2015

The technical innovation proposed here is the application of an alternative hydrocarbon fuel [HTML_REMOVED]#150; densified propylene, in combination with liquid oxygen (LOX) [HTML_REMOVED]#150; that has the potential to enhance the performance of a proposed Nano / Micro Launch Vehicle (NMLV) enough such that a simple two-stage, pressure-fed configuration will be sufficient for orbital missions. Besides eliminating the third stage, the absence of turbopumps reduces hardware costs, improves overall system reliability and s
