TECHNICAL ABSTRACT (Limit 2000 characters, approximately 200 words)
Development of an electric powerhead or Electropump for a 25,000 lb class Methane engine.

Components for integrated RCS (~100-lb class) and Main Propulsion System (MPS) (25,000-lb class) feed systems (utilizing common propulsion tanks)"

POTENTIAL NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
enabling technology for Mars Program office, especially for a large lander, as
electropump technology is ideal for a deep throttling 5:1 engine.

Enabling technology for small spacecraft launch vehicle

POTENTIAL NON-NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
small satellite launcher.

Mach 10 target launcher for USAF.

XS-1 Spacecraft upper stage.
