Research Institution

During the proposed Phase I research and development effort, the project team will integrate previously demonstrated technologies into a low-cost solid rocket motor to serve as a cis-lunar transfer stage to guide and propel small spacecraft on Trans Lunar Injection (TLI) trajectories. The resulting solid rocket motor will meet requirements for Mass Fraction and Specific Impulse that will enable it to achieve the NASA targeted lunar orbits. Key stage component will be fabricated and demonstrated in hot-fire, static testing. The Phase I project will demonstrate the solid rocket motor design fits within the constraints of a particular small launch vehicle. The proposed project team will develop a plan for a follow-on Phase II flight demonstration program.
