The VACCO / ECAPS CubeSat Hybrid ADN Delta-V / Reaction Control System is a high performance micro propulsion system (MiPS) specifically designed for CubeSats.
The Hybrid ADN MiPS is a self-contained subsystem that can be scaled from 0.5U to >1U. A single axial high-thrust, high specific impulse (Isp) ADN thruster delivers up to 1,036 N-sec of total impulse using only integral propellant.
The smart feed system automatically provides closed-loop thrust vector control during delta-v burns. Reliability is ensured through simplicity of design, welded titanium construction and frictionless valve technology.
