We are excited to announce that RPS has been selected for the 2023 National Security Innovation Network Vector accelerator cohort. Over the next 10 weeks, our team will be working to develop dual-use applications of our low-cost “Centurion” rocket engine technology. We are excited to explore how our company might help address key national security priorities including Ukraine, strategic deterrence, and Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2).
