Valworx, Inc., a leading supplier of actuated valves and controls, has partnered with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) to supply actuated valves for the school's Deneb project.
Deneb is an ambitious student-led project with the goal of launching a liquid rocket that can reach the edge of space, an altitude of 100km (the Karman Line).
"Embry-Riddle has long been recognized as a leader in higher aviation education, and we're excited to play a part in helping the next generation of aerospace leaders literally aim high," said Kurt Naas, President of Valworx and Embry-Riddle alumnus.
The valves will be used for the fuel and oxidizer feed systems for the liquid oxygen/kerosene-powered flight vehicle.
"Our students are developing rocket systems using techniques and equipment they will see in industry after they graduate," said Dr. Elliott Bryner, Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Director of the Propulsion Laboratory and Rocket Test Complex. "The knowledge and experience that they gain in these projects prepares them to contribute and excel after graduation. Partnerships between Embry-Riddle and companies like Valworx make projects like Deneb possible."
The test is currently scheduled to take place in spring 2023.
