A propulsion system and method are described configured to exert a force upon a vehicle. The system includes a concentrated mass which may be discharged from the vehicle by a propellant typically via an ejection tube. The system is optimized so that the discharged concentrated-mass imparts a large impulse upon the vehicle. The system and method may be used to alter the momentum of vehicles for propulsion, attitude correction, vehicle separation and the like.
1. A propulsion system configured to exert a force and impart an impulse upon at least one vehicle, said system comprising: at least a first vehicle comprising at least one chamber containing propellant;at least one exhaust ejection tube connected to said at least one chamber, wherein said at least one exhaust ejection tube is non-conical; andat least one concentrated mass, at least partially located within said at least one exhaust ejection tube and configured to be discharged from said first vehicle through said at least one exhaust ejection tube when ...
