Abstract

There is a need for cheaper small satellite rocket launchers. One way of reducing costs is to reduce the cost of individual components. We describe here the development of an inexpensive piston pump for rocket engine applications. It demonstrates that it can deal with the combined requirements of high flow rate and operating speed at cryogenic temperatures without incurring the costs normally associated with such performance.
