Continuing Development of Reaction Control System for Small Satellites
NASA has selected Valley Tech Systems, Inc., (VTS) for negotiation of a contract for its Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) proposal for an Affordable Small Satellite Launch Vehicle Reaction Control System. NASA announced the selection March 7, 2018.
VTS is applying its expertise in controllable long-duration solid-propulsion technology to the development of an Affordable Launch Vehicle Reaction Control System. A reaction control system provides thrust in any desired direction or combination of directions to adjust the trajectory of a spacecraft and provides torque to control rotation (roll, pitch and yaw).
