Disruptive technologies for space Power and Propulsion

Objective

"DiPoP is an assessment study for the European Space Policy (9.3.5 / SPA.2011.3. 5-01). Disruptive space power and propulsion technologies as well as their applications are assessed. Recommendations and roadmaps for FP8 for enabling an independent, long term European leadership is the “in fine” goal of the project DiPoP. Disruptive space propulsion and power technologies studied are: continuous detonation wave engine, space and ground nuclear fission (power 30 kWe to 200 kWe, including ""Rules for Public Acceptance with Launch & Operations Constrains""), solar and fuel cells, batteries, Power-MEMS (Power Micro- Electro-Mechanical System), Advanced Propulsion Systems and Power Processing Units. Space propulsion and power applications under DiPoP covers EC space work programme areas like propulsion (for entry, interplanetary flight, micro-propulsion systems, robotics), space exploration (mobility on planetary surfaces, habitation, life support), space power long term security and related areas."
