CEV RCS and Main Motor
« on: 12/08/2005 10:08 AM »

"The CEV main engine and RCS capability will be fully integrated (running off one set of methane and LOX fuel tanks. The RCS subsystem (100 pound thrust engines) will be configurable to provide an OMS backup capability (minimum of 16 Min continuous firing time). One thing not seen on any engineering drawing (except as provided by US Space News -some of who's writers work on the CEV program) are the two OMS 500 pound thrust engines to be located on the aft end of the CEV SM on either side of the SM main engine."
