Abstract
Phase II will exit with a new and substantially test-rig validated new solid-state integrated propulsion control valve actuator design for Divert and Attitude Control Systems (DACS) that present a unique engineering challenge in that they need to fit in tight volumes, require very high performance and are subject to extreme temperatures that fills the void of providing a highly engineered but simple actuator design that is cost effective, can effectively operate to high temperature that provides true proportional control and can stably operate to high temperature (280C/536F). Phase II will exit having demonstrated that there are substantial SWaP-C savings and reliability improvements gained by using this new simple new solid-state design.Approved for Public Release | 18-MDA-9522 (23 Feb 18)
