Active Thrust Vector control

The ENPULSION NANO AR³ allows to control actively its resulting thrust vector – without any moving parts. It can therefore steer, correct for CoG mismatch, or enable advanced missions requiring thrust pointing. It also features the same excellent controllability over the full thrust range and a low thrust noise of the heritage ENPULSION NANO.

Controllable specific impulse up to 6000 s

Due to the efficient ionization process, which allows the capacity to ionize up to 60% of the evaporated Indium atoms, the ENPULSION NANO AR³ can provide a higher specific impulse than any other ion propulsion system currently on the market.

MATURE TECHNOLOGY

The core of the ENPULSION NANO AR³ is a mature technology, developed under ESA contracts for 15 years, and is further building on the heritage of the ENPULSION NANO, leveraging the proven design and component selection.

SAFE AND INERT SYSTEM

The ENPULSION NANO AR³ contains no moving parts and the indium propellant is in its solid state at room temperature. Avoiding any liquid and reactive propellants as well as pressurized tanks significantly simplifies handling, integration, and launch procedures.

RAD-TOLERANT ELECTRONICS

All EEE components of the ENPULSION NANO AR³ are procured in lot-controlled batches. Selected sets of these batches are subjected to radiation testing, so that each thruster can be traced back to a fully representative qualification model. EEE components were selected and integrated to be more tolerant to TID and SEE.

PROTECTIVE CASING

The thruster is assembled into a protective casing that shields the electronics from the hazardous space radiation environment, facilitates handling during integration, and allows side mounting.
