    Saw this last night while googling around. Liquid bi-propellent engine, website claims 233 sec ISP, 2500 lbf, and a >60 sec burn time. I've never heard of a "triplet" injector before.

    Really cool stuff, i hope they're successful.

    PS All of their engines are very impressive. "The Mk. IIB had the first successful implementation of liquid injection thrust vector control on a hybrid rocket motor" that is very cool!

    Check out Rocket Propulsion Elements by Sutton if you're interested in bi props and injectors. Rocket motors with plumbing are sexy .

    Yeah, for an engineer I have some decent machining skills. I do enjoy machining quite a bit for sure and used to do a fair amount of work on hybrids before I had kids. Who doesn't like injectors!? I literally have some designs framed on my office wall :).
