This invention relates to a gas generator which is structurally and functionally integrated with a fluid heat exchanger. A liquid which is to be heated, vaporized, and used as pressurized gas is introduced into the integrated apparatus where the liquid absorbs heat from the adjacent, but separated, hot gas flow from the gas generator. Unlike the prior art, this integrated gas generatorfluid heat exchanger is useable to pressurize an oxidizer tank of a liquid engine missile.
