The DLR project LUMEN (liquid upper stage demonstrator engine) aims at developing and operating a modular LOX/LNG bread-board engine in the 25 kN thrust class for operation at the new P8.3 test facility in Lampoldshausen[1, 2]. The main focus of this project is to strengthen DLR's competence on rocket engine system level as well as to enable tests of new components in a representative system environment. This article gives an overview of the background of the LUMEN project. The planned bread-board engine is described and the reasoning behind propellant selection, choice of the expander-bleed scheme as the engine cycle layout and selection of technologies for key engine components is explained.
