Air-breathing Electric THrustER

Project description

Get electric propulsion to get to space

Electric propulsion (EP) is considered by all space actors as a revolutionary technology for the new generation of commercial and scientific satellites. In Europe, all stakeholders including the European Space Agency (ESA) have been working to develop and increase the competitiveness of the European EP technology for different types of markets. The EU-funded AETHER project will advance EP thruster design towards a more flight representative stage. It will demonstrate sufficient and reliable net thrust production for the target applications. The ultimate goal of the project is to advance the EP portfolio of Europe with the world’s first EP air-breathing engine.
