Blandino, John J.
Analyzed at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD the specific propulsion concepts and how they affect the performance variance of thrusters on satellites in multi-spacecraft missions. In order to simulate thruster performance variance on the Hubble Recover Mission, I developed a program in MatLab which was able to input a file of change in velocity vectors of a control situation and output parameters such as mass of propellant consumed while varying thrust levels and specific impulse values.
