Callan is a mono-propellant thruster designed for our Triteia CubeSat. It is SEDS UCSD's third 3D-printed engine. By running hydrogen peroxide through it's nickel-silver catalyst bed, decomposition of the hydrogen peroxide occurs and heat is generated.
The heat is channeled through a nozzle, providing thrust.
Callan and subsequent revisions were cold-flowed at Open Source Maker Labs in Vista, CA before being hot-fired at Purdue University.
