Success Stories

  1. SBIR-STTR-Success: Busek Co, Inc.

    A modern spacecraft performing interplanetary missions may change velocity by more than 20,000 miles per hour (32,000 km/hr). To achieve these speeds, Hall Effect Thrusters and other forms of ion propulsion may be used. For decades, xenon has been the gas of choice for most of NASA’s solar electric...
