|Producing New Vehicles For The 21st Century
Wallis Engineering, LLC is the premier provider
of Affordable Launch Capacity vehicles for the new age of space
development and exploration. By leveraging alliances and
technology that provides orders of magnitude improvement over
existing Expendable Launch Vehicles (ELVs), W.E.
can provide customers with vehicles that allow substantially
lower transportation costs for both Point To Point cargo
delivery and Low Earth Orbit insertion and release.
Some of the technological advancages W.E. can provide are:
- Single Stage Design
- By designing and building for single stage use,
W.E. have vehicles that provide the customer
with vastly simpler logistics and security. There are
no parts to be jettisoned, no stages to be dropped and
no components to replace each flight, providing for both
vastly lower operating costs and a far wider range of
launch sites than can be accomplished with the
traditional stacked, disintegrating totem-pole style
Expendable Launch Vehicles (ELVs). Because the whole
vehicle is returned and lands after each flight, the
customer doesn't have to build a new vehicle each time
they want to fly something.
- Rapid Vehicle Turnaround
- As any airline executive will tell you, the key to
profitability is keeping the aircraft in the air.
W.E. accomplish this by extending the ATA
"Massive Mission Model" approach for flight operations
to the era of spacecraft servicability by use of
onboard Vehicle Health Monitor systems, easy access
panelling for ground support, hot-swap capabilities on
all components and RapidLoad refueling options.
Together, W.E. provide 6 hour turnaround
with less than 10 "hands on" ground crew.
- Rapid Flight Response
- By developing exo-atmospheric vehicles at reasonable costs,
W.E. can provide your transportation
business with the reliability and flexability of
airplanes, but the speed and opportunitites of
spacecraft. No point on the surface of the Earth is
more than 60 minutes flight time away and you're
perfectly positioned to bid for space delivery
contracts to Low Earth Orbit (LEO).
- Storable Propellents
- By using High Test Peroxide (HTP) and regular
aviation kerocene (Jet-A), our vehicles provide
the simplest and easiest fueling options on the
market. Ease of fueling leads to ease of licensing and
ease of operations for our customers. Any major
airport, with only minor infrastructure work, can
become your port of departure, or your port of call.
