Abstract:

Analysis and design effort on the Advanced Maneuvering Propulsion System AMPS progressed satisfactorily during the third quarterly period. Engine system analyses of control system configurations and start transients were conducted. Design studies of engine packaging and component management continued. Thrust chamber, turbopump, and control component design analyses were performed. Propellant feed system analysis and design effort was accomplished on the propellant tanks, shroud and tank supports, insulation, pressurization, propellant orientation, attitude control, and feed lines. Engine critical component demonstration testing was accomplished on the main engine thrust chamber segment hardware. Twenty-three hot-firing tests were accomplished with the 5-inch solid-wall segment configuration over a chamber pressure range of 676 to 71 psia. Author
