Flight Qualification of Busek's 5N Green Monopropellant Thruster, BGT-5

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Flight Qualification of Busek's 5N Green Monopropellant Thruster, BGT-5
NASA will test a Busek 5N flight-like thruster which is designed to operate on AF-M315E; a non-toxic monopropellant. Testing will consist of performance, life and plume diagnostics at altitude to simulate space conditions. Key data will include Raman Spectroscopy and Schlieren imaging to study the plume species relative concentrations, temperature, velocity, and structure. More »
