Innovation

Small suborbital rocket.

  • Accomplishments

  • Development stage: Prototype

  • Constructed vehicle and launcher -- scheduled flight test for 1/99.

    Commercialization

  • Product/service name or trademark name: ScorpiusTM

  • US Patent No. 5799902 issued 9/98.

  • Primary target/potential market sectors: Microgravity experiments, sounding rockets, and target vehicles.

  • Very strong interest expressed by military community in low-cost target vehicle.

  • Unique competitive advantage: Cost estimated at one-half to one-third of existing vehicles.

First SR-S Vehicle on Erector-Launcher

  • Government/Science Applications

  • Potential use by the US Air Force, US Navy, US Army, and BMDO, for use during weapons testing and operations training.

  • Received NASA SBIR Phase III contract for $198,421 as a continuation of their Phase II effort.

  • When fully developed as a launch vehicle, saving could be in excess of $100M/year in suborbital vehicles alone.
