AIA A 2001-3641 Addressing EO-1 Spacecraft Pulsed Plasma Thruster EMI Concerns

  title={AIA A 2001-3641 Addressing EO-1 Spacecraft Pulsed Plasma Thruster EMI Concerns},
  author={C. Zakrzwski and Mitch Davis and Charles Sarmiento},
The Pulsed Plasma Thruster (PPT) Experiment on the Earth Observing One (EO-1) spacecraft has been designed to demonstrate the capability of a new generation PPT to perform spacecraft attitude control. Results from PPT unit level radiated electromagnetic interference (EMI) tests led to concerns about potential interference problems with other spacecraft subsystems. Initial plans to address these concerns included firing the PPT at the spacecraft level both in atmosphere, with special ground… CONTINUE READING
