RPS frequently engages in unpaid long-term collaboration projects with volunteers who are enthusiastic about our mission. The volunteers can gain valuable experience engaging with real-world propulsion related problems and understand the inner working of a small deep-tech business like RPS. The results from these projects feed directly into our long-term development goals (see more here) and are owned by RPS. Here are the current collaboration projects we are exploring:
- Application of machine learning for combustion instability forecasting and control in liquid rocket engines
- Application of microwave sensors for nonintrusive health monitoring in harsh environments developed within rocket or aero combustors
- Thermal management in cryogenic stages on deep space missions
- Trajectory analysis and optimization for flight vehicles with liquid propellants
