Research Institution

Systima is developing a high performance 25 lbf DACS thruster that operates with a novel non-toxic monopropellant. The monopropellant has a 30% higher density-specific impulse compared to hydrazine and is commercially available off-the-shelf. In Phase I Systima will focus on development of the propellant feed and injection system, and In Phase II these systems will be integrated into a complete thruster design. The Phase II work plan includes a system demonstrate with propellant in a workhorse thruster.
