Abstract
Systima is developing an IM compliant High Performance Green Propellant (HPGP) DACS thruster that operates with a novel non-toxic monopropellant. The monopropellant has a 30% higher density-specific impulse compared to hydrazine, insensitive/ not a detonation hazard, 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 the full thruster design. The Phase II work plan includes a system demonstration with propellant in a workhorse thruster. The result from the Phase I and II programs will be a highly efficient IM compliant DACS system design that can provide fast reaction times (<<10 ms impulse bit) with steady propellant burn characteristics and reliable performance.
