Avantus Avantus Federal , formerly known as E3/Sentinel, and rocket developer Interorbital Systems have agreed to jointly offer space launch services to the federal sector under a strategic partnership agreement. Both parties seek to combine methodology and capability in efforts to help government customers address space missions, Avantus said Friday. The alliance offers Interorbital Systems an opportunity to increase pursuits in the federal market. Christopher Duncan, director of space and cyber initiatives at Avantus, said the company aims to update its framework for spacefaring activity by applying orbital launch, vertical integration approaches. Avantus operates as a NewSpring Holdings platform company. Share

Spaceworks Engineering (sei) is a company that received a Department of Defense SBIR/STTR grant for a project entitled: A Thrust-Oriented Combined-Cycle Engine for Space Access. The abstract given for this project is as follows: SpaceWorks Engineering, Inc. (SEI) seeks government support to conduct preliminary development activities toward a unique new combined-cycle propulsion system for use in next-generation missiles, space access vehicles, and hypersonic strike aircraft. Combined-cycle engines advantageously integrate the best aspects of rocket engines and high-speed airbreathing engines and have been shown to offer vehicle-level weight, size, and cost advantages relative to separately installed propulsion alternatives. SEIs highly flexible SCAAT-Engine (Supersonic Core Air Augmented Thrusting - Engine) enables vehicle-optimized operation over a wide range of flight velocities and altitudes. Unlike other combined-cycle engine concepts, the SCAAT-Engine is specifically designed for adequate acceleration over the entire flight regime. For a nominal space access or long-range missile mission, the primary rocket is engaged for the entire flight -- generating a supersonic core flow exhaust stream. The supporting secondary airflow from the inlet and the ramscoops increases the rockets Isp by an average of 15% - 30% when combusted. The result is a small, compact and low cost vehicle configuration. Nominal propellants are LOX/LH2, but hydrocarbon alternatives are also candidate fuels. BENEFIT:SpaceWorks Engineering, Inc. (SEI) believes that a unique combined-cycle engine concept, if matured according to this research effort, would have several potential customers. If the SCAAT-Engine technology was licensed to a large-scale engine manufacturer, we estimate that hundreds of engines could be produced for the following potential customers: Emerging Commercial Space Access Firms, NASA/Civil Space Applications, Military Space Access Applications, and Military High Speed Missile Applications.
