Contract: HQ0006-04-C-7002
Award Amount: $99,947.00
 

Abstract:

AASC proposes to develop a pulsed field emisson electric propulsion system with adjustable specific impulse for microsatellites. A multiemitter liquid metal ion source array is paired with an innovative pulsing network that allows ion emission to be switched using pulses of a few hundred volts. A new automated system is proposed to ensure high effciency over a wide range of ISP. The phase I will develop and test a prototype system to prove the concept. The phase II effort will scale this system up using MEMS technology.
