A rocket propulsion system for spacecraft achieves greater economy, reliability and efficiency rocket by incorporating monopropellant RCS thrusters (1a-1f) for attitude control and bipropellant SCAT thrusters (5a-5c) for velocity control. Both sets of thrusters are designed to use the same liquid fuel, supplied by a pressurized non-pressure regulated tank, and operate in the blow down mode. In the propulsion system such station keeping and attitude control thrusters may function in conjunction with a large thrust apogee kick engine, which may also be of ...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] An attitude and velocity control propulsion system for a space craft comprising:monopropellent thruster means, said monopropellant thruster means, including a fuel inlet, for producing thrust in response to fuel supplied at said fuel inlet;bipropellant secondary combustion augmented thruster means, said bipropellant secondary combustion augmented thruster means including a fuel inlet and an oxidizer inlet for producing a thrust responsive to both fuel supplied at said inlet and oxidizer supplied simultaneously at said oxidizer...
