Dual Expander Cycle Rocket Engine with an Intermediate Closed-cycle Heat Exchanger

A dual expander cycle (DEC) rocket engine with an intermediate closed-cycle heat exchanger is provided.

A conventional DEC rocket engine has a closed-cycle heat exchanger thermally coupled thereto. The heat exchanger utilizes heat extracted from the engine's fuel circuit to drive the engine's oxidizer turbomachinery.
