Iodine Hall Thruster

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

A Iodine Hall thruster electric propulsion system provides high delta-V performance which will enable missions previously unachievable with small spacecraft. The new propulsion system will take advantage of the ~2.4X improved propellant density to extend mission operations in low earth orbit and enable deep space planetary science missions. More »
