After the Atlas V lifted off the pad and the upper stage separated from the first stage booster, a single RL10C-1 engine ignited to place the payload into orbit, helped by the thrusters and other Aerojet Rocketdyne-provided hardware for both the booster and upper stage.
When modeling the deviations such as thruster installation deviation in this method, the boundary point information is the only need.
The air tanks powering the thrusters are based on the "composite overwrapped pressure vessel" (COPV) also used in the Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy rockets.
We consider a thruster placed at [r.sub.i] and oriented to [d.sub.i] with respect to the body frame (see Figure 1(a)), and it generates a torque moment [T.sub.I] = [r.sub.i] x [d.sub.i] x [f.sub.i] with respect to the mass center.
The thruster test went so well, the team will likely do a similar test on the TCM thrusters for Voyager 2, the twin spacecraft of Voyager 1.
