The geostationary 1300 has a designed service life of 15 years and maintains station-keeping and orbital stability by using bipropellant propulsion and momentum-bias systems.
May 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Aerojet, a GenCorp (NYSE: GY) company, successfully completed a second set of hot-fire test sequences of its R-1E 25-pound thrust, bipropellant engine.
This engine complement includes sixteen 25-pound thrust engines, eight 100-pound thrust bipropellant engines and a 7,500-pound thrust Orion Main Engine.
The 1300 is designed to achieve a long useful orbital life, in this case 13 years, excellent station-keeping, and orbital stability by using bipropellant propulsion and momentum-bias systems.
Aerojet provided reaction control thrusters for the Delta IV upper stage, as well as a bipropellant chemical propulsion engine for the GOES-P satellite.
The 1300, which has an excellent record of reliable operation, is designed to achieve a long useful orbital life, excellent station-keeping, and orbital stability by using bipropellant propulsion and momentum-bias systems.
Aerojet's contributions included the 20,000-lbf service module propulsion system (SPS), sixteen 100-lbf bipropellant reaction control system (RCS) thrusters on the LEM and 16 on the service module.
