Reducing Hazards of Propulsive Secondary Payloads by Implementing a Post Launch Pressurization System

Abstract: Propulsion systems on SmallSats and CubeSats are becoming more common as launch vehicles like SLS begin providing rideshares to destinations beyond low earth orbit. While these spacecraft are a solution to achieve advanced science objectives at lower cost, they are still subject to the same rigorous standards as other larger spacecraft, such as NASA STD-5019, due to the high pressures within their propulsion systems at launch. A Post Launch Pressurization System would allow a spacecraft to b…
