During the proposed Phase II research and development effort, the project team will complete the integration of previously demonstrated technologies into an upper stage propulsion system for a Small Launch Vehicle (SLV). The resulting stage will meet launch vehicle requirements for Mass Fraction and Specific Impulse. The Phase II project will result in the hot-fire qualification of a flight-weight upper stage in a static test. The proposed project team will develop a plan for a potential follow-on Phase II flight demonstration program.
