Wide Throttling, High Throughput Hall Thruster for Science and Exploration Missions, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Wide Throttling, High Throughput Hall Thruster for Science and Exploration Missions, Phase I
In response to Topic S3-04 "Propulsion Systems," Busek proposes to develop a high throughput Hall effect thruster with a nominal peak power of 1-kW and wide throttling range in terms of both power and Isp. In Phase I, we will design the thruster, focusing on achieving a magnetic field that shields the discharge channel from ion induced erosion. More »
