This proposal provides an innovative solution to eliminate the high pressure, cold gas pressure vessel used on typical liquid DACS systems by using gas generated by burning off some of the fuel in the main fuel tank as a mono-propellant. The DACS fuel would be a hydrazine blend such as M-75 to obtain good catalytic performance.
