Hydrogen peroxide propulsion for smaller satellites (SSC98-VIII-1)

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

As satellite designs shrink, providing maneuvering and control capability falls outside the realm of available propulsion technology. While cold gas has been used on the smallest satellites, hydrogen peroxide propellant is suggested as the next step in performance and cost before hydrazine. Minimal toxicity and a small scale enable benchtop propellant preparation and development testing. Progress toward low-cost thrusters and self-pressurizing tank systems is described.

Physical Description

516 Kilobytes
