This report summarizes the results of a United States Air Force funded effort to demonstrate the Multi-Axis Pintle Attitude Control MAXPAC system. The MAXPAC system is a spin-off of the Fourth Generation Escape Systems Technology Demonstration Program. MAXPAC uses four discrete, pintle-controlled rocket nozzles to provide variable thrust in three axes. The intent is to provide an under-seat retrofit for the Advanced Concept Ejection Seat ACES II replacing the current pitch stabilization rocket with the three-axis stabilization MAXPAC.
