Abstract
Our Precision ACS (PACS) while combined with either a Liquid or Solid DACS delivers high precision Kinetic Weapon (KW) attitude control for long range target discrimination and acquisition. The PACS features multiple pulse Electric Solid Propellant (ESP) thrusters that are either individually pulsed controlled for very small impulse BIT"s or controlled in parallel for larger ACS thrust. The PACS takes full advantage of the inherent IM (1901a) and"Green"attributes of the new ESP technology. The result is an extremely light weight, simple and low cost ACS subsystem that, when combined with a Liquid or Solid extinguishment DACS, enables the KW to operate for 500 to 1000 sec.
