ECR THRUSTERS Electron Cyclotron Resonance Thrusters
Electrodeless ambipolar thrusters using Electron Cyclotron Resonance.
Wide range of performances can be selected, depending on the propellant and input power.
Our ECR thrusters compete with GIE and HET at lower cost and wider suitability for alternative and green propellants.
Gridded Ion Engine
Up to 1 kW ECR GIE optimised for Xenon propellants.
Our ECR-GIE enhances plasma density and therefore suitability with alternative propellants.
In combination with our microwave (MW) thrusters it provides a fully all-electric propulsion architecture: orbit raising, station keeping and RCS.
