Executive Summary

Rotodet’s goal is to enable the future of inter-orbital transportation and commerce by designing and manufacturing compact, lightweight propulsion systems for last-mile payload delivery. As the launch services industry transitions to economical heavy-lift vehicles, humanity will have unprecedented access to space and an unmet need for inter-orbital payload transfers. Our high-performance Rotating Detonation Engines are designed to be lighter and more compact than traditional rocket engines, allowing us to transfer larger payloads to any orbit. By taking advantage of the physics of detonation waves, our engines achieve high chamber pressure and supersonic exhaust velocity, with a lower pressurization requirement and no traditional nozzle. This allows us to reduce the size and weight of our engines while still providing customers with enough Delta-v to reach their final destination.
