Alternative propellants for Gridded Ion Engines

Applied Electromagnetism, Plasma and Space Science
European Commission, H2020

Within the European GIESEPP project, investigations of the operation of the thrusters with alternative propellants will be performed to ensure their functionality. A combination of analytic modelling and experimental testing will be used to evaluate the impacts of alternative propellants to achieve the objective of reducing the dependence of electric propulsion systems from the expensive and limited Xenon.
