Abstract : A high pressure hydrazine gas generator having a decomposition chamber which contains therein an initiator of I2O5 crystals and a plurality of heat retaining balls. The liquid hydrazine which is initially introduced into the decomposition chamber, ignites upon contact with the initiator and creates a high temperature within the decomposition chamber. This high temperature is maintained within the chamber by the heat retaining balls and therefore sustains decomposition of the liquid hydrazine into gases which are emitted from the generator under extremely high pressure.
