Abstract
Our Precision Attitude Control System (PACS) delivers high precision attitude control for Kinetic Weapon (KW) long range target discrimination and acquisition. The PACS utilizes electrically-controlled solid propellant (ESP), an innovative propulsion technology that enables fast burn rate control, throttling, and extinguishment of thrusters, simply by controlling applied electrical current. This unique feature of the PACS will allow the KW to operate for extended durations when combined with a conventional liquid or solid-extinguishment DACS. In addition, ESP thrusters are small, light-weight, have a modular design, and are capable of providing on-demand multiple pulses. Thrusters can be easily controlled and packaged in groups or"clusters", making them adaptable to a number of KW configurations. ESP propulsion systems are inherently safe, insensitive to high temperature and mechanical stress, non-toxic, and inexpensive. This proposed Phase II SBIR Program will support the maturation of DSSP"s proposed PACS to a system-level TRL.
