High Power Electric propulsion: a Roadmap for the future

High Power Electric propulsion: a Roadmap for the future

Objective

The main objective of the HiPER project is to initiate technological and programmatic consolidation in the development of innovative electric propulsion technologies (and of the related power generation) to fulfill future European space transportation needs. The objective will be pursued by conceiving and substantiating a long term vision for European space transportation and exploration, considering realistic developments in the state-of-the-art, and by performing basic research and proof-of-concept experiments on the key technologies identified by such a vision.
