Gridded Ion Engine Standardised Electric Propulsion Platforms (GIESEPP)

Start date: Jan 1, 2017, End date: Dec 31, 2020,

The consortium proposes an innovative activity to develop, build and test to TRL5 the first European Plug and Play Gridded Ion Engine Standardised Electric Propulsion Platform (GIESEPP) to operate Airbus Safran Launchers and QinetiQ Space ion engines. These are the only European ion engines in the 200-700W (LEO) and 5kW (GEO) domains that are space-proven, and the consortium’s intention will be to ...

Consortium for Hall Effect Orbital Propulsion System (CHEOPS)

Start date: Nov 1, 2016, End date: Apr 30, 2020,

CHEOPS proposes to develop three different Hall Effect Thruster electric propulsion systems: a dual mode EPS for GEO applications, a low power for LEO applications and a >20 kW high thrust EPS for exploration applications. Each of these will be developed according to market needs and drivers applying incremental technology changes to existing EPS products. The development approach will follow the ...

Miniaturized Pressure Regulator (mPRS) (M-PRS)

Start date: Sep 23, 2013, End date: Jan 1, 2017,

The proposed project “mPRS” comprises the development of a miniaturized pressure regulation system with ultra low leakage, high reliability and an end-of-life venting capability (passivation) of tanks. Most of the space propulsion systems require a pressure regulation system (PRS) to have a constant inlet pressure of the propellant feed system. In the case of chemical propulsion systems the consta ...
