Three Department of Defense experimental payloads will also fly aboard the Green Propellant
Infusion Mission spacecraft, which is scheduled for a launch to low-Earth orbit in 2016 in partnership with the Army Space and Missile Defense Command.
They don't work as well with faster-burning propellants
as the mil-specstyle cases.
NASA officials recognize that the team has to convince industry that the new propellant
is a suitable replacement for hydrazine, said Michael Gazarik, associate administrator of NASA's space technology mission directorate.
In addition to the goal of maintaining master samples for all nitrocellulose-based propellants
in the Army stockpile, each year the Joint Munitions Command (JMC) orders hundreds of propellant
samples from a variety of storing locations to be prepared and shipped to the Army Propellant
Surveillance Laboratory (APSL) at Picatinny Arsenal.
Other company fortes include current research on stealthy and insensitive propellants
He said: 'Test-firing at the Ridsdale range (in Northumberland) has left soot and debris in the gun barrel, demonstrating fatal flaws in the Nitrochemie propellant
Royal Ordnance's owners BAe Systems are testing propellant
produced by German company Nitrochemie, with the aim of shutting Bishopton.
Its new generation of aerosol-type spray cans use a patented compressed-air propellant
These gas pockets would create an empty space for the rushing propellant
to fill, fostering the pressure surge.
The Chinese propellant
plant will increase our localization rate and align our manufacturing capacity to the market demand while simplifying our supply chain.
