  1. More Attitude Control Thruster Options Brittany Waletzko Translunar/OTV Phase Week 7 Brittany Waletzko - ATT

  2. The Scenario BrittanyWaletzko- ATT Need thrusters to despin/desaturate reaction wheels during TLI Must be capable of impulsive ΔV ~50 m/s Already using Electric Propulsion for main engine  utilize power for attitude control? <1>

  3. Bottom-Line Figures (hydrazine monopropellant system uses <1W) Bottom line: Neither of these options is likely to be the best option based on cost, power consumption, and complexity Future Work: Solidifying supporting hardware mass/power/cost figures, OTV integration work BrittanyWaletzko- ATT <2>

  4. Questions? BrittanyWaletzko- ATT <3>

  5. Thruster Locations and Thrust Direction Vectors Thruster placement planned with assistance from Brian Erson Brittany Waletzko - ATT <4>

  6. How They Work Source: TU Delft website Brittany Waletzko - ATT <5>

  7. Further Comments Brittany Waletzko - ATT <6>

  8. Updated System Estimates 8 thrusters may be too redundant; 4 already allows for the loss of one thruster, 8 makes the entire system redundant  reliability analysis needed Brittany Waletzko - ATT <7>
