Research Theme: Sustainability
FURI: Spring 2019

As investment into the commercial space industry accelerates, the industry is challenging engineers to improve the sustainability of space flight. Space flight merchants seek to reuse launch vehicles as many times as possible and to expand the potential uses of such launch vehicles. The intent of this research is to model the application of a novel process for thrust vectoring, which is a vital function for sustainable space flight. This process would aid sustainability by being simpler than existing methods.
