Poway-based SpaceDev this week took the wraps off a concept for a six-passenger space vehicle. The concept, called Dream Chaser, would mate a NASA-designed spacecraft, similar to the space shuttle, with hybrid rockets of SpaceDev’s design.
SpaceDev said it has not identified funding for the project.
Separately, SpaceDev announced Nov. 17 that it had received a $2.7 million Air Force contract to design, develop and test a hybrid rocket motor.
SpaceDev’s motor design burns rubber.
