Abstract : This report describes the work performed by TRW Systems Group during a 12-month period with the objective of advancing the state of the art of valves used on spacecraft liquid propulsion systems. Current problems and future requirements relating to valve design, operation and test were determined. Interviews were held with personnel of NASA, Mr Force, and prime manufacturers of propulsion systems to identify valve problems. New technology was utilized where necessary, to solve problems. Areas of study included propellant valves, valve actuators, and fluidic controls, instrumentation and measurements, liquid propellants and thin polymeric films. The results of the effort are reported in two volumes.
