Triton Space Technologies is delighted to announce that our new low cost initiator, the TS-LCI100 will be used by the Northeastern University AIAA Project Karman rocket team to help achieve their goal of being the first university team to fly a student built rocket above the 100km Von Karman Line definition of space. Our low cost initiator is ideally suited for allowing head end ignition of solid rocket motors and through a technology partnership with RCS Rocket Motor Components (RCS), Inc. and its AeroTech Consumer Aerospace™ Division, we are delighted to announce a new line of AeroTech Reloadable Motor System™ (RMS™) forward bulkheads which utilize the TS-LCI100 to permit head end ignition of reloadable motors. These new forward bulkheads will soon be available for sale to experimental/research motor customers from the RCS online store. Our low cost initiator may also be purchased now through RCS, the exclusive distributor for the TS-LCI100.
Both Triton Space Technologies and RCS are thrilled to be able to provide these new products to the Northeastern University team for their project Karman second stage experiments. The project Karman team will be test flying a subscale 2 stage vehicle April 7th at LDRS utilizing one of AeroTech’s 38mm forward bulkheads and the TS-LCI100. This first flight test will help the team validate their stage separation design and avionics ignition circuitry for the second stage motor.
Be sure to check the Project Karman website here: http://www.northeastern.edu/aiaa/project-karman/ for more details on the team and updates on the results of this first attempt at second stage ignition in flight.

Today we are delighted to announce that Triton Space Technologies, LLC is able to support the Boston University Rocket Propulsion Group, BURPG, by providing them with two of our TS-160Y pyro actuated poppet valves for their Lotus Liquid Engine Program. The TS-160Y provides high (3,000 psi) working pressure coupled with high flow capacity with 1” male AN connections and a liquid CV of 13. With pyrotechnic actuation the valve opens very fast (~75ms, much faster than typical pneumatically actuated ball valves are capable of) thereby allowing for the precise timing required to achieve a repeatable ignition sequence for liquid engines. With high flow rate and precise timing the TS-160Y is ideally suited for liquid sounding rocket applications like the BURPG Starscraper sounding rocket. With Starscraper the BURPG team plans to be the first student group to send a sounding rocket above the 100 km Von Karman line and cross the technical definition of space. This will be a monumental milestone for a university team to accomplish and Triton Space Technologies is delighted to be able to help with this project.
Luke Colby, Triton Space’s President and CEO, had the following to say about the deal: “As a BU Alumnus myself and the original founder of the BU Rocket Program many years ago, I am truly delighted to see the team still around after all these years and going strong! It really means a lot to me to be able to give back to the team and the university in this special and unique way. When I started the team back in 2002 I couldn’t have imagined that one day I would have my own engineering company and would be in a position to provide the BURPG team with support in the form of flight hardware that my company designed, built and tested. We are truly thrilled to be able to help BURPG and look forward to working with them closely to complete Starscraper and fly it successfully to space.” You can read more about the BURPG team efforts on their team website (www.burocket.org) and about the TS-160Y from Triton Space Technologies here: www.Triton-Space.com/TS-160y
