Abstract

In this phase I effort a design for a gas generation system architecture tailored for RCS gas accumulators on lander vehicles with ultra-low mass and thermal mass BHL components will be produced and PDR for the system will be conducted. GTL will modify its existing gas generation system for demonstration and component comparison testing. GTL will study the validity and applicability to lander systems of three potential gas generation system architectures.Given GTLrsquo;s experience with cryogen, gas generation, and launch systems, the phase II will enable two milestones to be achieved for this system architecture: 1) expanding the systems to produce oxygen and hydrogen gas, and 2) prepare the system to be flight tested aboard GTLrsquo;s ACE-Disruptor rocket. These milestones will both broaden the system architecturersquo;s capabilities and provide a clear path to TRL 7.
