The SpaceX-developed Draco thruster generates up to 90 pounds (400 Newtons) of force using monomethyl hydrazine as a fuel and nitrogen tetroxide as an oxidizer - the same orbital maneuvering propellants used by the Space Shuttle.
This process includes loading the propellants monomethyl hydrazine and nitrogen tetroxide into the Orbiter Maneuvering System and Forward Reaction Control System.
The new engine provided the heavy lifting with its 445 Newtons (100 pounds) of thrust, using the standard satellite bipropellants, monomethyl hydrazine and nitrogen tetroxide.
