The applications derived from creating safer versions of high-performing liquid bipropellants are numerous and will find many NASA applications especially in the secondary payload propulsion marketplace. Among these uses are: gelled liquid apogee engines, reaction control thrusters, and gelled liquid upper-stage engines. Specific NASA applications include attitude control engines for spacecraft and satellites, apogee engines on spacecraft, orbit transfer, maneuvering and station keeping. This technology will find direct applications and insertion opportunities into several existing NASA related engines and platforms including: Modular Common Spacecraft Bus (MCSB), R-4D family of thrusters including HiPAT Apogee Kick Motor, Draco and Super-Draco engines.
The applications derived from creating safer versions of high-performing liquid bipropellants are numerous and will arise from both civilian and military uses. The proposed technology will find many applications in attitude control and apogee engines for commercial and government satellites. Other military and commercial applications include maneuvering and divert and attitude control system engines for hypersonic and other kill vehicles. The primary commercial customers for the end-product are the space launch community and federal agencies such as Air Force, Army and MDA as well as their aerospace propulsion contractors.
