Abstract : This invention relates to gas pressure operated devices which are commonly known as thrusters and used in emergency aircraft escape systems and the like. It provides an improved thruster wherein the gas used to actuate the thruster is also used to dampen its motion. This double use of the energizing gas has the advantage that it reduces the weight and size of the thruster and improves its operation.
