A propulsion system including an extinguishable rocket motor and an incorporated maneuver control system. The rocket motor may be of the solid fuel type. One or more proportional axial thrust valves in communication with a pressure vessel or motor case containing a solid fuel propellant may be used to release combustion products for creating axial thrust. A plurality of proportional maneuver control valves in communication with the pressure vessel and having associated maneuver control thrusters may be selectively actuated in different modes of operation...
What is claimed is: 1. A propulsion system, comprising: a pressure vessel containing a propellant, wherein the propellant comprises at least one solid propellant grain; at least one axial thrust valve in communication with the pressure vessel and configured for selectively releasing gases generated by combustion of the propellant within the pressure vessel to directly provide axial thrust; and at least one maneuver control valve in communication with the pressure vessel and configured for selectively releasing gases generated by combustion of the propel...
