TECHNICAL ABSTRACT (Limit 2000 characters, approximately 200 words)
During the proposed Phase I research and development effort, the project team will integrate previously demonstrated technologies into a stage 4 propulsion system for an existing Small Launch Vehicle (SLV). The resulting fourth stage will meet launch vehicle requirements for Mass Fraction and Specific Impulse. Key stage component will be fabricated and demonstrated. The propulsion system will be evaluated in a hot-fire test series. The proposed project team will develop a plan for a potential follow-on Phase II flight demonstration program.

POTENTIAL NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
Upper stage propulsion systems for Small/Nano/Micro Launch Vehicles.
Satellite propulsion systems.

POTENTIAL NON-NASA COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS (Limit 1500 characters, approximately 150 words)
Upper stage propulsion systems for Small/Nano/Micro Launch Vehicles.
Satellite propulsion systems. Ballistic missile Post-Boost Propulsion Systems. Tactical missiles.
