Small Launches, Big Results
What we offer
just a brief overview
Safety
Hybrids traditionally keep the fuel and oxidizer in two different matter states, which prevents them mixing except under specifically controlled conditions. With Rocket Crafters’ STAR-3D™ design, both fuel and oxidizer are non-hazardous and can be handled at room temperature. This eliminates the risk of accidental detonation found in both solid and liquid rocket engines, making them significantly safer than their other two counterparts. The fuel for the engines is so safe in fact that some of Rocket Crafters’ staff have taken the fuel with them on airplanes as carry-on luggage without issue.
Throttleable Controls
The STAR-3D™ engines are so mechanically simple that they include only two moving parts, a main on/off valve and the throttle valve. The engines use differential pressure to maintain pressure in the oxidizer tanks: high-pressure Helium pushes the Nitrous into the engine; just like squeezing a tube of toothpaste. The engines can then be throttled by regulating the amount of oxidizer entering the engine, allowing thrust to be adjusted as needed.
Affordable
Unlike Liquid Bi-propellent engines, the fuel in the STAR-3D™ engine serves as the main combustion chamber and there are no complicated expensive turbo-pumps and extensive plumbing lines. As a result, there are significantly fewer components necessary in the engine making the cost of production significantly lower. Because the engine itself is just plastic the total cost of materials is also less expensive. The unprecedented safety of the hybrid motors also contributes to significant cost savings, from cheaper transport and handling to significantly fewer parts to monitor during launch – and thus, fewer potential fail points.
Reliable
The simplicity of STAR-3D™ engines prevents complications where moving parts could fail or not perform properly. With only two moving parts, our engine avoids failures associated with mechanically complex engines. In addition, because the fuel is 3D printed, the engines are nearly identical to each other; meaning that each one will perform the same as the next.

3D Printed
In addition to our revolutionary injection system, Rocket Crafters is producing fuel grains using our patent-pending, horizontal 3D printing method which reduces production time for orbital-class fuel grains to a matter of hours in a single section. Contrast this to the weeks or months required to produce traditional rocket engines. Through the synergistic relationship of plastic and metal 3D printing with the simplicity of the STAR-3D™ design, Rocket Crafters is capable of developing and manufacturing new engines of almost any size and scale in a matter of weeks instead of the years required for the more complicated Liquid Bi-propellent Engines or more dangerous Solid Rocket Motors

The Future Of Space-Flight Products
STAR-3D Hybrid-Rocket Engines
The Future of Small Scale Launches

Hybrid rocket engines combine the best elements of both liquid-fueled and solid-fueled rockets, using either a liquid oxidizer and a solid fuel or vice versa. STAR-3D™ hybrid rocket engines use liquid Nitrous Oxide as the oxidizer and solid ABS (Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene) thermoplastic (a common consumer-grade plastic) as the fuel and combustion chamber. Using a solid fuel allows for greater energy density like that found in a solid rocket motor.  A liquid oxidizer allows the engine to be throttled by increasing or decreasing the flow of oxidizer into the combustion chamber, providing the control usually found in a liquid motor. Added to that, hybrid rocket engines are mechanically simple, needing only a handful of moving parts to operate.  In short, Rocket Crafters is building a simple rocket engine burning Laughing Gas and Legos. 

Rocket Crafters Launch Services
just a brief overview

We’re launching the first in a series of sub-orbital rockets this winter. We intend to announce the first commercial launch of our Intrepid-1™ rocket following those tests.

If you are interested in getting a copy of our Intrepid-1™ Payload Guide, please contact us at info@rocketcrafters.com and we’ll be in touch.

The leader in space flight innovation.

Our mission is to provide safe, reliable, cost-effective, and eco-friendly launch services. To revolutionize access to space and make it available to the rapidly growing small satellite market.  To do this we are developing Intrepid-1™, the world’s first mass-producible, ‘launch-on-demand’ small satellite launcher.
