An exoatmospheric vehicle uses a control system that includes a thrust system to provide thrust to control flight of the vehicle. A regenerative heat system is used to preheat portions of the thrust system, prior to their use in control of the vehicle. The heat for preheating may be generated by consumption of a fuel of the vehicle, such as a monopropellant fuel. The fuel may be used to power a pump (among other possibilities), to pressurize the fuel for use by thrusters of the thrust system. The preheated portions of the thrust system may include one or...
1. A control system for an exoatmospheric vehicle, the control system comprising: a fuel supply containing a monopropellant fuel;a thrust system for providing thrust for controlling the course of the exoatmospheric vehicle by decomposing the monopropellant fuel from the fuel supply in the presence of a catalyst; anda regenerative heat system that is used to preheat a preheated portion of the thrust system by using heat from decomposition of the monopropellant fuel, prior to providing the monopropellant fuel to the portion of the thrust system;wherein the...
