Vaya Space Obtains Multiple Patents for Vortex-Hybrid Engine Technology | New
COCOA, Fla., Aug. 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vaya Space, the hybrid vortex-engine rocket company and emerging leader in sustainable access to space, today announced that the U.S. Patent and of Trademarks (USPTO) has granted the Company two patents on its revolutionary hybrid vortex propulsion technology.
The private company Vaya Space, which operates in the United States and Brazil, has recently become one of the leaders in the space industry and in the small satellite launch sector. The company has taken a technology-driven approach that is different from many of its well-funded competitors and as such has recently gained credibility with many industry leaders through recent agreements with NASA and major satellite customers who have chosen Vaya Space as the launch supplier for their constellations.
The company’s first patent was granted for its unique production process of its 3D-printed fuel grain that enables superior performance through even combustion across the entire engine. The second patent protects Vaya’s vortex flow field injection system design. The vortex flow of liquid oxygen through the 3D lathe-printed rocket motor combines with Vaya’s other technologies to deliver over 110 kN of thrust per motor, up to 350 seconds of ISP, and eliminates instability and other problems that have plagued hybrid engines for decades past.
Rob Fabian, COO of Vaya Space, said, “These two patents are a testament to Vaya’s world-class engineering team, and we’re just getting started. Breakthrough doesn’t begin to define what we’ve recently accomplished. We see no barriers to the transformation of this industry and adjacent industries, and we hope to make a difference for the environment in the process. »
Vaya’s rocket motors are produced from over 20 metric tons of recycled thermoplastics and deliver industry-leading payload performance at a significantly lower cost than competitors. Vaya engines have no TNT explosive equivalence and use materials that are non-toxic, non-hazardous and require no special handling, storage or transport. Vaya’s rocket engines use far fewer components, which improves reliability, are far less expensive to produce, and operate with significantly lower emissions.
The awarding of Vaya’s two patents, multiple additional intellectual properties in its pipeline, and recent contracts and agreements with satellite customers and NASA have positioned Vaya not only as the greenest rocket company in the industry, but also as the emerging leader and low-cost supplier. in the area.
About Vaya Space, Inc.
Vaya Space is a private hybrid vortex rocket company based on the Space Coast of Florida with subsidiaries in Brazil. Vaya Space has developed revolutionary and patented technologies that are transforming access to space. Vaya was created in 2017 by Sid Gutierrez, former space shuttle commander and the first American-born Hispanic astronaut. Launch Command’s last words to Sid at liftoff were “Vaya con Dios” against his traditional “Godspeed”, and shortly after that inspiration, Vaya was born.
Vaya is a goal-oriented, sustainability-driven, and environmentally conscious company dedicated to making a difference for humanity. Vaya Space competes in the small satellite launch segment of the space industry, a market that is expected to reach $1 trillion over the next decade. Vaya’s unique hybrid vortex rocket uses the equivalent of two million recycled plastic bottles per launch and overcomes the costs and other issues associated with traditional liquid or solid rockets to transform industry safety, affordability and sustainability .
