Abstract : This patent describes a self-contained power subsystem having at least one actuator module containing at least one actuator, an expulsion tank module connected to the actuator module and a gas generator module connected to the expulsion tank module. A solid propellant within the gas generator module generates a gas, this gas, under pressure, passes into the expulsion tank module where it expels a hydraulic fluid located within the expulsion tank module to a plurality of passageways within the actuator module. Under control of a servo-valve the fluid within the actuator module operates the actuators.
