AIAA 97-3058 Thruster Options for Microspacecraft: A Review and Evaluation of Existing Hardware and Emerging Technologies

Abstract

State-of-the-art thruster technologies are reviewed and evaluated in view o f p o t e n t i a l microspacecraft applications. Microspacecraft are def ined in this s tudy as spacecraft with masses between 1 and 20 kg. Based on this review of existing technologies, future development needs for micropropulsion systems are defined and advanced new… (More)
