Pulsed Plasma Thrusters (PPTs) are finding renewed user appeal due to the growth in small satellite applications. PPTs are especially well suited to small satellite applications because they are simple, low-mass, and high Isp propulsion systems. The solid Teflon fuel allows for a self-contained, inert and stable propellant system. With a power draw of only… CONTINUE READING
