Potential NASA commercial applications for this technology are Earth-orbiting science satellites that require large delta-V maneuvers to reach mission orbit (Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite [GOES] spacecraft, for example), interplanetary satellites that need to perform critical orbit insertion maneuvers (NASA Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft and MAVEN spacecraft, for example), and cargo resupply vehicles (SpaceX Dragon capsule, Orbital Cygnus vehicle, and JAXA H-II Transfer Vehicle, for example). Another potential NASA commercial application for this technology is the growing need for end-of-life controlled deorbit propulsion for Low-Earth orbiting satellites, due to the technology's high performance and long-term storability.
Advanced green, low-toxicity, monopropellants offer significant advantages in performance and reduced handling infrastructure for commercial and military vehicles and payloads and allow for modular designs for enhanced response capabilities. Specifically, this technology is well suited for in-space propulsion, missile DACS applications, and auxiliary power units (APUs) among others. This technology is also ideally suited for military 'ship and shoot• propulsion system applications that require safe ground storage and fast turn-around launch readiness.
