Test miniature Hall effect thrusters (HETs) that operate at power classes never before achieved.

Description

Test miniature HETs (Hall effect thrusters) that operate at power classes far below the 100W-class thrusters of today’s satellite industry. The research payload will consist of a 60W HET, an integrated 30W HET (in a 1.5U volume), and two 10W Hall Effect Micro Jets (HEM-Jets). A 3-axial, 5-nozzle cold gas thruster will round out the experimental thruster payload. The consortium will test additional miniaturized systems for plasma propulsion including:
• 8-channel gas feeding unit,
• plasma diagnostic unit,
• power processing and control unit,
• Earth magnetic field measurement unit.
