An improvement to a variable-pressure solid-propellant-powered maneuvering system for spacecraft, enabling the system to operate for longer than one propellant burn time. At least two solid propellant gas generators are connected via a manifold to a plurality of nozzle valve clusters at least one of the gas generators is connected to the manifold via a sequence valve which isolates that generator from the manifold until such time as it is desired to put that generator into operation.
