Development of Futuristic High performance propulsion system for small satellites EOR and station keeping

Project Description

For decades, Hydrazine monopropellant systems have been the dominant propulsion technology for low total impulse applications. In older days, Hydrazine was found to be superior over other propellants like Hydrogen Peroxide, as the decomposition temperature reaches maximum of 1000 "C and involves simultaneous exothermic and endothermic decomposition reaction at the thrust chamber which releases hot gasses of Ammonia, Nitrogen and Hydrogen gasses. Though Hydrazine is toxic, Hydrazine propulsion system is highly mature and physical parameters and performance of the system is high compared to other propellants.
