ATK logo_TNNIATK has developed a thruster technology for NASA“™s Goddard Space Flight Center that is intended to help store and handle materials, as well as process the launch site.

The company completed the first U.S.-based tests of the high performance green propulsion technology after previously evaluating the system’s fidelity and operability in space at its facility in Elkton, Md., in April, ATK said Monday.

ECAPS, a subsidiary of the Swedish Space Corp., developed the HPGP’s thrusters and fuel and ATK is licensed in the U.S. to sell those products.

Cary Ralston, ATK vice president and general manager for missile products, said the company aims for the technology to address mission performance.

Christyl Johnson, NASA GSFC deputy director for technology and research investments, said the HPGP testing intends to help reduce the impact of health and safety hazards on the personnel and environment.
