  2. Propulsion Optimization of Thrust though Auxiliary Entrainment of Neutrals (PROTEAN)

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: AF11BT10

    ABSTRACT: State of the art Orbital Transfer Vehicle systems require the demanding combined requirements of both high Thrust-to-Power (greater than 120 mN/kW) and high specific impulse (greater than 3000 s), all at constant power. The 25 kW PROTEAN system is a two-stage plasmoid thruster which adds an secondary auxiliary Neutral Entrainment (NE) stage to the ElectroMagnetic Plasmoid Thruster (EMPT ...
