Parabilis Space Technologies, Inc (Parabilis), in collaboration with Utah State University (USU), proposes further development of a low-cost, high-performance launch vehicle upper stage that uses a high density, storable oxidizer and a polymer fuel grain as propellants in response to solicitation T1.01, Affordable Nano/Micro Launch Propulsion Stages. This effort will build upon the successful optimization studies, design, and testing activities completed during Phase I. The resulting technology will fulfill the ever-growing mission demands of the extensive CubeSat and NanoSat market by enabling dedicated launch for CubeSat scale payloads. Comparable launch vehicle stages in this size class are not currently commercially available. The proposed -green-propellant- system offers significant advantages over competing technologies in the areas of cost, safety, and mission capability.
