Micro liquid mono-propellant propulsion

 


The Liquid Mono-Propellant Propulsion (LMPP) has essential working principle of the mono-propellant thruster is that it uses hydrogen peroxide or hydrazine with catalytic decomposition. There are jet systems using thermal decomposition for hydrazine. The hydrazine has some advantages before hydrogen peroxide: it is more stable and has specific impulse Isp up to 230 s.
We proposed the combined jet system – the motor using liquid mono-propellant and plasma accelerator.
