OPPORTUNITY AND RISK

Opportunities:
  • PAYLOADPROJECT.COM strives for application of high technologies of other industries in the space sector
  • Reducing the temperature in engines can have significant consequential effects on engine design → less expensive materials, better reusability, facilitated use of advanced nozzle concepts nozzle concepts
  • Chemical rocket engines are difficult to control in terms of combustion kinetics. physicochemical measures offer a comprehensive alternative with manageable alternative with manageable effort
→ assume that in the case of technical feasibility and integrability, the economic ensure feasibility

Risk-reducing have a risk-reducing effect:
  • Numerous design variants and possible applications (Figure 1)
  • Further development of existing technologies (e.g. use of catalysts)
  • chemical rockets have already been optimized to such an extent that even small improvements offer economic advantages
Overview and dependencies

Nevertheless, there are residual risks that cannot be cannot be completely ruled out in the current start-up phase (e.g. (e.g., from other possibly even better projects, criminal spies).
