Tenders are invited for: Experimental determination of storable propellant
properties for modelling purposes
Under its contract with Boeing, financial details of which were not available, the company will leverage proven Attitude Control Propulsion System thrusters from heritage programmes, the successful hot-fire Bantam test and its storable propellant
engineering capabilities to best meet Boeing's requirements.
Investigations have shown up to now that for storable propellants
the MMC formulation with magnesium matrix is highly promising.
The Bantam engine family extends up to 200,000 pounds of thrust and can be adapted to use various fuels, including: kerosene, ethanol, methane and storable propellants
