Spacecraft missions require a simple, high performing and highly reliable propulsion system to meet performance requirements. Unlike many other types of spacecraft thrusters, electrospray devices can be successful in a variety of propulsion applications. Due to their small size and flexible form factor, electrosprays are well-suited for primary propulsion, attitude control and formation flying. Electrospray Thrusters for Spacecraft Propulsion: Fundamentals and Technology covers the fundamentals and underlying physics of electrosprays and how they are used in controlling thruster performance. The book begins with a historical overview exploring how this technology has been rapidly growing with the emergence of small satellites and CubeSats. It covers a variety of topics such as electrospray plumes, interfacing with the spacecraft, dual propulsion, fluid feed systems, hybrid concepts, and future developments. This book is for aerospace and mechanical engineers, researchers, and advanced students taking electric propulsion courses. Provides a comprehensive understanding of the physical implementations, past failures, and current working implementations of electrosprays Discusses the origins of electrospray technology, the historical hurdles, and directions in which the technology is moving Features an up-to-date description of existing thruster/spacecraft interface and interaction with spacecraft

The standardization of small spacecraft through CubeSats has allowed for more affordable space exploration. This progress in affordability has been limited to Earth orbit due in part to the lack of high [delta]V propulsion systems that are compatible with the small form factor. The ion Electrospray Propulsion System developed at the Space Propulsion Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is a promising technology foundation for a compact, high [delta]V propulsion system. However, the [delta]V output of

Two primary propulsion modes currently exist for spacecraft: chemical (e.g. monopropellant, cold gas, solid propellant) and electric (e.g. Hall thruster, ion engine, electrospray). Chemical propulsion typically offers high thrust and low specific impulse, while electric propulsion provides the inverse of low thrust and high specific impulse. As such, having access to both of these modes on the same spacecraft is extremely useful for a wide range of applications. The conventional propellants used by chemical and electric thrusters are

High specific impulse electric propulsion systems enable ambitious lunar and interplanetary missions that return a wealth of scientific data. Many of these technologies are difficult to scale down, meaning the spacecraft are relatively massive and expensive. The Space Propulsion Lab (SPL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is developing compact, high specific impulse ion electrospray thrusters which do not suffer from the same sizing limitations. The Ion Electrospray Propulsion System (iEPS) is tailored for small spacecraft and can perform

Small satellites are changing the space scene dramatically. By drastically reducing costs while still having impressive technological capabilities, their popularity among the space community is increasing at a very fast rate. Propulsion systems for these class of spacecraft are very limited. One promising technology is the ion Electrospray Propulsion System (iEPS) developed at the Space Propulsion Laboratory at MIT. Electrosprays accelerate ions present in the interface between an ionic liquid and vacuum using strong electric fields. Current thrust estimates for

"This dissertation presents work on development of multi-mode specific spacecraft propulsion systems. Specifically, this work attempts to realize a single propellant capable of both chemical monopropellant and electric electrospray rocket propulsion, develop methods to characterize multi-mode propulsion system performance, and realize a system capable of both monopropellant and electrospray propulsion for a small spacecraft. Selection criteria for ionic liquid propellants capable of both monopropellant and electrospray propulsion are developed. These are based on desired physical properties and performance considering use

Recent advances in the development of highly conductive ionic liquids have made them of interest for use as propellant in spacecraft propulsion systems. Electrospray thrusters apply strong electrostatic fields to an ionic liquid in order to extract and accelerate charged particles, producing thrust. The behavior of these ionic liquids as they pass through the components of an electrospray system can have a significant effect on thruster operation. The wetting and adhesion behavior between the ionic liquid propellant and solid materials

Franz Georg Hey summarises the development and testing of a micro-Newton thrust balance, as well as the downscaling of a High Efficiency Multistage Plasma Thruster to micro-Newton thrust levels. The balance is tailored to fully characterise thruster candidates for the space based gravitational wave detector LISA. Thus, thrust noise measurements in sub-micro-Newton regime can be performed in the overall LISA bandwidth. The downscaled thruster can be operated down to serval tens of micro-Newton with a comparably high specific impulse. About
