NASA Plum Brook Station In-Space Propulsion Facility Test Stand Characterization Hot Fire Test [STUB]

Abstract: A test facility modification to enable small scale altitude propulsion testing at the NASA Glenn Research Center’s In-Space Propulsion (ISP) Facility was verified with a hot fire test campaign. As the facility’s primary steam supply system undergoes refurbishment, the alternate facility configuration, known as the “vacuum accumulator” mode, would enable rocket engine testing up to 10,000 lbf thrust. The NASA Johnson Space Center developed the vehicle for the verification test campaign: the In…
