The NSMMS brings together the nation’s technology leaders to review the critical challenges of materials, processing and manufacturing for space, missile and hypersonic systems. The CRASTE focuses on integration of emerging technologies and space access architectures to satisfy new and existing markets.

Valley Tech Systems’ innovative hot gas, throttling and extinguishment and reignition technologies regulate the use of solid propellant to achieve levels of precision and long-duration operation that approach those of liquid and cold-gas systems. Solid propulsion systems offer superior reliability, safety and affordability.
