    These studies indicate that for chemical rockets only a cryogenic propulsion system would provide high enough performance to be considered for a Mars ascent vehicle. Although the mission is possible with Earth-supplied propellants for this vehicle, utilization of in-situ propellants is highly attractive. MSR would demonstrate Mars lift-off capability, while ISRU would test the ability to produce fuel and oxidizer using Martian resources, a crucial step for future human missions. A two-stage Mars Ascent Vehicle (MAV) concept was developed to support sample return as well as in-situ propellant production.

    Nitrous Oxide Fuel Blend (NOFBX\™) is a nitrous-oxide-based mono-propulsion technology developed specifically for a Mars Ascent Vehicle (MAV) application by Firestar Technologies, largely funded.   NASA should forget about using Starship as a lunar lander (at least for now) and instead use it as an in-orbit refueling station for much smaller landing and ascent vehicles.

The indigenous propellants of oxygen and carbon monoxide were studied for use in a Mars Ascent Vehicle (MAV). Both the oxygen and carbon monoxide were evaluated as turbine working fluids for a full expander engine cycle used in the MAV. Two oxygen working fluid engines and four carbon monoxide engines were investigated.

These studies are necessary to guide and prioritize technology investments to continue our progress towards enabling human missions to Mars. The MAV, which transports the crew off the surface of Mars. Earth lift-o without MAV propellant allows the propulsion system to preclude heavy, complex redundancy systems.

Mission Pro le To address MSR and ISRU goals, a potential Mars Ascent Vehicle (MAV) was designed to lift a sample to Mars orbit. The vehicle would use two stages to achieve a delta V of km/s and an orbit of km.

The ascent propulsion system (APS) or lunar module ascent engine (LMAE) is a fixed-thrust hypergolic rocket engine developed by Bell Aerosystems for use in the Apollo lunar module ascent stage. It used Aerozine 50 fuel, and N 2 O 4 oxidizer.

The areas of comparison were performance, safety, and feasibility. Based on these evaluation criteria, we have recommended a liquid propulsion system using CO/O2 propellants as the most favorable configuration for the development of a long-term, Mars ascent vehicle.

possible in-situ propellant combinations for the development of a long-term In-Situ Mars Ascent Vehicle (IMAV). The propellant combinations were then configured into the appropriate rocket propulsion class: solid, liquid or hybrid. An optimum in-situ propellant combination choice was then chosen for each of the three propulsion classes.

Earth return vehicle loiters in either a 1 Sol or 5 Sol orbit, see Figure 2. Two of the three main architecture options assume oxygen and methane propulsion systems that take advantage of Mars atmosphere for In Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) oxygen production to supply MAV propellant.

A third explores a storable propulsion option for the MAV. The design for a Mars Ascent Vehicle using a paraffin-based fuel and Nytrox oxidizer meets all the requirements of the mission. These two key new technologies: liquefying hybrid fuels (such as paraffin) and Nytrox oxidizers can be combined to design high energy, operationally flexible, low cost, safe, non-toxic and environmentally friendly.

Discussion: Mars ascent vehicle propulsion system. The hybrid rockets based on fuels with large metal loadings and the N 2 O and C O 2 mixture as the oxidizer is a promising candidate for propulsion systems that can be used in Mars missions.

A large fraction of the propellants can easily be pumped from the Martian atmosphere. Samples can be collected and returned using LH2 and LOX propellants produced from in situ ice for ascent and return propulsion maneuvers.
