The LAE is a pusher launch abort system that rapidly 'pushes' a spacecraft toward safety if a launch abort is needed. If unused for an abort, the propellant and propulsion system are used to complete the spacecraft's nominal mission through separation of the crew module from the service module as it begins re-entry back into the Earth's atmosphere.
'The LAE test series saw the engine successfully operate at twice its mission life, producing 39,700 pounds force thrust,' said Lorier. 'The four LAEs are derived from proven hardware based on heritage designs.'
The CST-100 service module propulsion system provides integrated launch abort capability and all propulsion needs during flight from launch vehicle separation, docking and undocking with an orbiting space complex, and through separation of the crew and service modules when the spacecraft begins re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere.
'There are 24 1,500-pound thrust class
The 28 100-pound thrust class RCS engines are adapted from a similar engine design currently in production. These engines provide high-altitude abort attitude control, on-orbit low delta-v maneuvering functions and space station re-boost capability.
