Session

Technical Poster Session 10: Propulsion

Location

Utah State University, Logan, UT

Abstract

The Magdrive: A next generation in-space electric propulsion system based on the generation of super dense plasma and magnetic plume confinement. The system offers high levels of thrust, along with variable specific impulse that allows the user to achieve the high thrust required for responsive, rapid manoeuvres, or the efficient high specific impulse for long duration thrusts, all with one device.
