About us

Our story

It all started in 1993 when Tom went to Space Camp in Huntsville Alabama with his family. Seeing the actual Apollo Saturn Five rocket, Mercury and Gemini rockets, astronauts capsules, going through the space museum, walking around an SR-71 and walking under the space shuttle, created his interest in participating in rocketry.
Around 1999, after witnessing constant crashes on flights over 20,000 feet, Tom invented the CD3 CO2 system. The latest revision of the CO2 system, is smaller and lighter and is now called CD4.

Rouse-Tech, Inc. was formed to serve the rocketry community with the CD4, PD3 and the previous activity of manufacturing Aero-Tech motor hardware.


Rouse-Tech, Inc, is finishing up on their latest project- a parachute reefing device to be used in rocketry to eliminate dual deployment designs. The parachute reefing device is called PD3 for u201cParachute Delayed Deployment Device.u201d Rob Briody, Tomu2019s life-long friend is part of this new product, designing the electronics system.

Tom was a founding member of ARLISS with Professor Bob Twiggs of Stanford in 1999. Arliss has continued to become successful rocket launch for University students from around the world, in Black Rock Desert every September.

Tom has also served on the Tripoli Board of Directors, and is now part of the C3R3 Committee that reviews applications for Class 3 rocket flights. It was an honor to be invited to participate in this.

Rouse-Tech will continue to be a source of products for the rocketry community, in both education and Tripoli and NAR events.
