Contract: W9113M-04-P-0067
Award Amount: $90,157.00
 

Abstract:

Microfabrication technologies have made possible the development of microscale energy conversion and chemical processing systems. Micro-power generators (combustion chamber volume ¿¿ 10-20 mm3), which burn hydrogen or hydrocarbon fuels, have the potential to be more compact and longer-lived than chemical batteries as a portable power source. The development process of Miniature Kill Vehicles (MKVs) will greatly benefit from the advancement of microfabricated propulsion systems. Since storable liquid bipropellant systems offer the most performance (Specific Impulse, Isp, as high as 450s, high thrust to weight ratio) and the most versatility (pulsing, restart, variable thrust), the MKVs could effectively utilize liquid bipropellant microrockets for their divert propulsion and attitude control systems for higher effectiveness, better range, maneuverability, and kill performance.
