All Powdered Solid Propulsion System for Throttleable Divert and Attitude Control Systems
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
Physical Sciences Inc. proposes to design, develop, and demonstrate a controllable solid powdered propellant rocket motor for throttleable divert and attitude control systems (TDACS) in missile interceptors. Our concept enables a controllable and throttleable thrust pulsing operation, as well as, multiple start capability comparable to bipropellant liquid propulsion systems. In Phase I, the proposed investigation will focus on experimentally characterizing critical operational parameters to ensure realistic system level design with the intention of achieving a prototype demonstration in Phase II while simultaneously maximizing performance of future TDACS capability.
