Cold Gas Thruster Module
Parke. In Production.Designed to provide triaxial attitude control for small launch vehicles. The module comprised three cold gas thrusters operated by integral independent solenoid valves.

Status: In Production. Thrust: 111 N (25 lbf). Unfuelled mass: 0.0860 kg (0.1890 lb). Specific impulse: 68 s. Height: 0.0635 m (0.2083 ft). Diameter: 0.0254 m (0.0833 ft).

The central thruster generates 111.2 N and the two lateral thrusters provide 55.6 N, each when operated with a 136 atm dinitrogen gas supply. Each has an Isp of 68 sec. The solenoid valves are pilot operated and have a response time of <5 milliseconds at max gas inlet pressure.. Manufacturer: Parker Bertea Aerospace. Operating Pressure Range: 136 - 13.6 atm. Thrust at 136 atm: 4.5 - 111.2 N and 8.9 - 55.6 N. Voltage: 284 V dc. Response Time: 8 milliseconds max. Mass: 0.086 kg per thruster. Size: 25.4 mm diameter X 63.5 mm per thruster.

Engine: 0.0860 kg (0.1890 lb). Chamber Pressure: 138.00 bar. Thrust to Weight Ratio: 132.55.



Family: Cold Gas. Country: USA. Propellants: Nitrogen gas. Agency: Parker Bertea.
