Description/Abstract

Micro-satellites in the 1-20kg range with limited onboard resources would benefit greatly from miniaturized, low power electric propulsion systems. This paper reports on a feasibility study into the scaling and application of MEMS manufacturing techniques to produce such a micro-hollow cathode thruster
