The NASA Glenn Research Center (GRC) ion propulsion program addresses the need for high specific impulse ion propulsion systems and technology across a broad range of mission applications and power levels. Development areas include high-throughput NSTAR derivative engine and power processing technology, lightweight high-efficiency sub-kilowatt ion propulsion, micro-ion propulsion concepts, engine and component technologies for highpower (30 kW class) ion engines, and fundamentals. NASA GRC is… CONTINUE READING
