ENPULSION MICRO R³

Building on the heritage of the ENPULSION NANO, ENPULSION has developed a scaled version of the technology to target small and medium size spacecrafts. The ENPULSION MICRO R³ is engineered in a modular approach, with units clustering easily together to form building blocks that can be arranged for various mission profiles.

Mature technology

The ENPULSION MICRO R³ is a scaled technology of the ENPULSION NANO which has a developmental history of over 15 years. During this time, there have been hundreds of emitters tested with an ongoing lifetime test that has surpassed 30,000 hours of firing. This endurance test continues without degradations.

Modular package with high total impulse

One module and its tank only take up a volume of 1.6 L and can provide more than 50,000 Ns at 4,000 s Isp. The module is simply bolted to the outside of the spacecraft and can be used as a standalone unit or it can easily be clustered for higher thrust applications.

Dynamic precise thrust control

The thrust can be controlled through the electrode voltage, which provides excellent controllability, down to a precision of 50 µN as well as low thrust noise.

DEBRIS SAFETY

Even during active operation, no part of the thruster is pressurized, and no chemical energy is stored. This means that in case of a collision or impact, there will not be an explosive reaction which could harm the spacecraft and create debris.

Controllable specific impulse up to 6,000 s

With its efficient ionization process the ENPULSION MICRO R³ can deliver higher specific impulse than any other ion propulsion system currently on the market.

HERITAGE ELECTRONICS

The Power Processing Unit is based on the heritage electronics used in the ENPULSION NANO, leveraging exhaustive on-orbit and testing heritage, as well as introducing component lot control and heritage in EEE part selection. The PPU can be either stacked or integrated separately from the thruster.

Safe and inert system
COMPLIANT DURING LAUNCH

The ENPULSION MICRO R³ contains no moving parts and uses non-toxic Indium as the propellant. There are no liquids or reactive propellant as well as no pressurized vessels. Stored as a solid and filled at our facilities it requires no special handling, integration, or launch procedures.
