Developing advanced, environmentally friendly rocket engines based on innovative gel-propellant technology, NewRocket provides a new alternative to both solid rockets that once ignited cannot be controlled or shut down and reignited, and to liquid rockets, that are difficult to maintain and rely on very toxic or cryogenic propellants.

NewRocket’s gel-propellant rocket engines combine the best of both solid and liquid rockets – they are safe and simple to use, yet feature high performance and controllability.

Developing breakthrough technology to increase the energy and power of super-capacitors and lithium ion batteries by connecting carbon nanotubes (CNT) with various electrode materials to create highly conductive 3-dimensional structures, CENS is set to meet the increasing demands of electronics, transportation, medical device and defense markets.

CENS technology enables significantly greater utilization of CNT properties – including much improved power and energy: The CENS CNT-particle clusters provide super-capacitors with about 50% more power than equivalent type cells produced with conventional CNT mixtures; thereby enabling desirable features such as fast charging, longer cycle life, and better reliability.
