Multi-Channel Diffuser (MCD)


  • Increases pressure recovery up to 20%

  • Increases operating range significantly

  • Reduces size 15%

  • Reduces weight 25%

  • Reduces operating cost / emissions up to 20%



The patented Multi-Channel Diffuser (MCD) technology significantly increases the performance of pumps and compressors while reducing their size, weight, and power consumption.  The MCD will work with any pump or compressor that utilizes a centrifugal impeller, and can be easily incorporated into new designs or retrofit into existing designs.  It is expected to result in savings of billions of dollars per year in energy costs and corresponding reductions in carbon dioxide emissions.  With its performance improvements and cost reductions, the MCD will provide products with a significant competitive advantage.


CHAMP Turbopump

The CHAMP turbopump is a 6.5k lb-force thrust-class high-speed, single-shaft, LOX/Methane turbopump.  CHAMP is an acronym for Compact High-performance Affordable Modular Pump.  It can operate as a stand-alone turbopump for small engines, or be combined with additional turbopumps in parallel for increased thrust class engines.  It utilizes a state-of-the-art flow path design enabled by additive manufacturing for high-performance and low-cost.




  • High pressure (up to 5,000 psia), low flow rate (up to 25 GPH) Positive Displacement Pump

  • Ambient to cryogenic operating range

  • Compatible with most liquids including oxygen, hydrogen, methane, nitrogen, and numerous storable liquids and hydrocarbon fuels

  • Designed for long life



SCAMP, the Self-Contained Actuating Magnetic Pump, is a positive displacement pump for low flow, high pressure cryogenic applications.  The wide throttling capabilities of positive displacement pumps allow SCAMP to delivery up to 5,000 psia and 25 GPH, while capable of reducing operating flow rates well below 1 ml/min for precision events. This pump is fully sealed, enabling operation within any environment from internal tank submersion to hard vacuum. Primary applications for SCAMP are small and nanosatellite pump fed propulsion and RCS systems as well as terrestrial facility applications.


Cascade Engine


  • Monopropellant, pressure-fed engine

  • Scalable from 0.01 - 1,000+ lbs thrust

  • Low ignition / catalyst energy consumption, < 5 Watts, regardless of thrust class

  • Multiple propellant options: nitrous oxide, hydrazine, AFM-315E, etc.

  • Reduces operating cost / emissions up to 30%


The patented Cascade Engine provides a low energy consumption monopropellant engine for satellite propulsion.  By staggering the injector arrays, the combustor continuously decomposes the propellant without flooding the chamber or stalling the engine.  This allows for minimal ignition / sustaining energy regardless of thrust class, allowing for scalability to meet any mission’s needs.  The engine works with most monopropellants and can also be used as an igniter.



Electric Motor Driven Pumps

The e-Pump is a family of compact, high power density, high-performance electric motor driven pumps.

The initial product launch includes pumps for liquid methane, liquid oxygen, and RP for engines in the 5-10K pound force thrust class.

Liquid hydrogen pumps and additional thrust classes are planned.


Portable Turbo-Generator


  • Scalable portable power generator to 30 kW

  • <50 lbs system weight

  • Configurable for multiple hydrocarbon fuels including diesel, JP-8, kerosene, Jet-A, etc.

  • Nominal fuel consumption of 1.2 GPH @ 30 kW


The Portable Turbo-Generator is a high-efficiency, modular Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) designed to operate with a variety of hydrocarbon fuels.  This architecture allows each system to be configured quickly to any given fuel, power, or packaging needs.  Initially designed for lightweight compact aviation use, the turbo-generator readily adapts to high-energy consumption ground-based applications as well as portable infrastructure utilization.  Power output can be tailored from 0 – 500 V, AC or DC.

Electric Motor Driven Pumps


  • Electric motor driven single-stage pump with integral inducer and impeller

  • 42,000 RPM rotor speed

  • 1,000 psia pump discharge pressure

  • Flow rate: Methane 4.2 pps, oxygen 11.2 pps, hydrogen 0.7 pps

  • 0.8 - 1.2 Q/N operating range


The e-Pump is a family of compact, high power density, high-performance electric motor driven pumps for rocket engines in the 5-10K pound force thrust class.  Pumps have been developed for methane, hydrogen, liquid oxygen, nitrogen, and RP.  e-Pumps can be combined in series and/or parallel for higher discharge pressures and/or flow rates to support higher chamber pressures and thrust classes.


DESLA® Engine


  • Thrust:  30,000 lbf

  • Cycle:  Dual-Expander

  • Fuel:  Liquid Hydrogen

  • Oxidizer:  Liquid Oxygen

  • Mixture Ratio:  5.88

  • Specific Impulse:  465 seconds

  • Length:  57 inches

  • Diameter:  74 inches



The DESLA® engine utilizes a truncated aerospike nozzle to provide the high area ratio needed for an upper stage engine, without the length associated with a bell nozzle.  It uses modular combustion chambers to reduce cost and enable deep throttling.  As a dual-expander cycle, it operates with separate turbopumps that do not require an inter-propellant seal, which increases reliability and safety.  The DESLA® engine technology is scalable to other thrust classes and propellants.
