For the analysis, three propulsion system configurations are used to fulfill the mission AV requirements; a SOA nitrogen stored gas system, a SOA hydrazine monopropellant system, and a (projected) HAN-based monopropellant system. Figure 2 shows a schematic of the propulsion systems and Table II provides a breakdown of the assumed component Size: KB.

Oleson National Aeronautics and Space Administration ; National Technical Information Service, distributor [Washington, DC]: [Springfield, Va. NASA is developing a new monopropellant propulsion system for small, cost-driven spacecraft with AV requirements in the range of m/sec.

This system is based on a hydroxylammonium nitrate (HAN)/water/fuel monopropellant blend which is extremely dense, environmentally benign, and promises good performance and simplicity.

Hydroxylammonium-nitrate-based monopropellant thrusters have been continuously researched as a replacement for conventional hydrazine thrusters. An ignition system using the discharge plasma of noble gas, called a discharge plasma system, has been proposed in substitution for the conventional solid by: 4.

The final book chapter is dedicated to an historical survey of the Russian developments in solid rocket propulsion. No matter how impressive from both a theoretical and experimental viewpoint, for a variety of reasons, they are still little known, if not misunderstood, beyond the national barriers.
