"This is a critical milestone for the GPIM program that will be a game-changer for how we travel in and through space," said
The green propellant propulsion subsystem, built by
AF-M315E burns hotter than hydrazine, requiring new metals to withstand the high temperatures in the thrusters aboard the propulsion system.
The GPIM payload will fly aboard the BCP 100 spacecraft bus, which will provide standard payload interfaces and streamlined procedures for short lead-time and affordable access to space.
