The experts at Teledyne Brown utilize computer-aided design tools to translate architectural concepts into functional designs for propulsion systems. We help our customers to identify products required for the successful development and certification of propulsion elements and assist in the verification and certification of human-rated propulsion systems. Past propulsion efforts at TBE have involved component-level design and development, including, but not limited to, pyrotechnic devices, filters, sensors, valves, actuators, ducts, and fluid systems.
Notable examples of TBE’s experience with the integration of a propulsion system onto a spacecraft include the Ares I-X Roll Control System and the Lunar Lander Test Bed. More recently, TBE has been performing engineering, development, and advanced manufacturing of rocket engine subsystems and components for use in launch and in-space applications.
TBE is a charter member of the Rocket City Space Pioneers.
The Rocket City Space Pioneers team is a Huntsville, Alabama-based team competing for the Google Lunar X PRIZE. The object of this competition is to land a rover on the moon, have it travel at least 500 meters, and return high-definition video and imagery back to Earth by late 2013.
