The company Impulse Space is developing a 14 ton Methan / LOX kick-stage called Helios.

It shall lift a 5 ton payload from LEO to GEO within a day, speeding up the deployment of satellites and saving their on-board fuel.
When used on a Falcon9 it can help to retain the booster, thus lowering the overall launch cost.

A test version is in the Helios-00.zip below. Included are two scenarios, one on a Falcon9, the other one on a VulcanCentaur.
How to reach geostationary orbit is described in the documentation.
