Abstract:

The objective of the proposed research and development effort is to demonstrate the feasibility of laser propelled systems with greatly simplified hardware and improved performance. This will be accomplished through application of an advanced propellant system. This technology will help to enable a responsive, low-cost launch system for micro-satellites, based on the combination of a high efficiency multi-stage electromagnetic gun and laser beam propulsion. The technology will be experimentally demonstrated during the research program.
