Crowned Technology. Spacecraft Propulsion Systems Powerful. Space Propulsion with more than 5000 Ns Inert non-pressurized tank during launch Extremely high total impulse density Significantly cheaper than Xenon Compact. IFM Nano Thruster and IFM Nano Thruster SE Developed for ESA Science Missions 6th Generation PPU > 85% efficiency Easy and fast just Plug & Play Modular. Your customized propulsion system Made of pre-qualified building blocks No extra cost for customization No additional lead times! Clustering of the porous tungsten crown emitter Achievable either on sub-systems level or on crown level. The modular design of the IFM Nano Thruster allows for an easy clustering to various configurations. This introduces an inherent redundancy of the system, as each module is completely independent. The configuration of seven modules fits into a 15-inch (38 cm) separation ring, which allows for 2.4 mN of continuous thrust at 200 W and a total impulse of more than 35 kNs with 1.75 kg of propellant. Clustering individual IFM Nano Thrusters Clustering Individual Modules is an advantage for spacecrafts that are smaller than ~150kg. Clustering Porous Tungsten Crown Emitter The IFM Micro 100 Thruster is engineered in a modularity approach, with units clustering easily together to form building blocks that can be arranged for various mission profiles Thruster Shop A highly versatile modular concept The modular approach of the IFM Nano Thruster allows for a large number of possible mission advantages. Attitude Control Capabilities With multiple modules, one can have the opportunity to perform accurate attitude control. Orbit Life Extension Possibilites Mission extension ranging from weeks to years, especially in low altitude orbits with increased resolution for earth remote sensing such as imaging applications. Formation flying and constellation control Controlling inter-satellite distance in the orbital plane. Orbit raising made flexible for each launch Gain flexibility in the choice of a suitable launch opportunity, including a cheap ISS deployment. Highly efficient deorbiting Efficiently deorbit a small satellite from a higher orbit to comply with international Space-Debris Regulations or perform an EOL maneuver putting it in a graveyard orbit. Safe and Inert systems compliant The thruster uses liquid metal as the propellant. The 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.
