Microsatellites are now in vogue and a lot of and a variety of missions using them are progressed in the world, some of them require propulsion system to realize a highly precise attitude control or orbit transfer. In order to satisfy the requirements, we are developing Microsatellite-Friendly Multi-Purpose Propulsion System, MFMP-PROP, with capabilities of both mono-propellant and bi-propellant modes to provide both of small impulse bit and large delta-V, under the policies of Safety First, Border Free, Effective COTS, and Easy Scalability, based on the techniques of 60wt% Hydrogen Peroxide. We conducted captive tests of a thruster for mono-propellant mode under bi-propellant mode to confirm its stable ignition and continuous operation, and obtained performances under its pre-heating temperature and mixing ratio of hydrogen peroxide and ethanol, of 160 seconds of specific impulse at the highest.
