Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) techniques offer great potential in satisfying the mission requirements for the next generation of miniaturized spacecraft being designed by NASA and Department of Defense agencies. More commonly referred to as `nanosats', these spacecraft feature masses in the range of 10-100 kg and therefore have unique propulsion requirements. The propulsion systems must be capable of providing extremely low levels of thrust and impulse while also satisfying stringent… CONTINUE READING
