Green Propellant Infusion Mission Program (GPIM)

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

The mission is architected as a collaboration of NASA, Industry, and Air Force partners with the objective to advance the technology for propulsion components using AF-M315E green propellant. AF-M315E is a low toxicity, higher performance monopropellant formulation developed by the Air Force Research Laboratory and has the potential to increase the performance of propulsive vehicles, while reducing the costs and risks associated with propellant handling. The AF-M315E propulsion payload includes four 1N thrusters for attitude control and a single 1N thruster for primary thrust which will be flown on a standard Ball Aerospace BCP100 spacecraft bus.
