Test miniature Helicon RF (Radio Frequency) thruster.


Mission is to prove the functioning of a non-restrictive propulsion system capable of compensating for the atmospheric drag of the CubeSats. For this, we are developing it in partnership with the ICARE laboratory of the CNRS with the electric propulsion team led by Mr. Stéphane Mazouffre.

It is a miniature Helicon RF (Radio Frequency) thruster capable of reaching the objective with an input power of less than 15W.
