A thruster for use in a spacecraft uses vaporized propellant in its combustion chamber (110). Normally two propellants are used of the kind used for main thrusters so that two vaporization chambers are needed. Pressure valves (108, 109) are controlled by electronic means (220) to maintain current pressure.
An attitude and orbit control thruster for use in a spacecraft having liquid bipropellant thrusters, comprising: a combustion chamber having a thrust nozzle; a fuel tank for containing a supply of liquid fuel; an oxidizing agent tank for containing a supply of liquid oxidizing agent; a pair of vaporizing chambers, each having an inlet and an outlet; first conduit means connected between the fuel tank and the inlet of the one of the vaporizing chambers for conveying the fuel along a first path to said one vaporizing chamber for vaporization therein to for...
