An improvement to a variable-pressure solid-propellant-powered maneuvering system for spacecraft, enabling the system to operate for longer than one propellant burn time. At least two solid propellant gas generators are connected via a manifold to a plurality of nozzle valve clusters; at least one of the gas generators is connected to the manifold via a sequence valve which isolates that generator from the manifold until such time as it is desired to put that generator into operation.
In combination with a solid-propellant-powered maneuvering system for spacecraft having (1) a first gas generator set for providing a hot gas output said first set consisting of at least one gas generator each generator containing solid propellant and having an ignition means responsive to an ignition command, the burn rate of said propellant being directly related to the pressure of said gas output so that the rate of said gas output is directly related to the pressure of said gas output, (2) at least three nozzle valve clusters disposed to be mounted o...
