Description du projet
Novel thruster technology to supply better propulsion performance for space missions
The helicon plasma thruster (HPT) is a radio frequency-powered plasma propulsion technology that can perform well while eliminating many issues that have affected electric propulsion systems (EPSs) to date. The EU-funded HIPATIA project seeks to provide a cost-effective solution for large constellations of small satellites. It aims to verify the function and performance of an EPS based on the HPT technology for its application in non-geostationary satellite constellations and other small spacecraft. To improve HPT performance, the project plans to integrate the system and verify it against market needs.
