MINOTOR project advancement
The 50 ECR thruster will be tested in October 2018.
The 50W ECR thruster, developed in the frame of the MINOTOR project, will be put into operation in October 2018 in the JUMBO space simulation vacuum chamber at Giessen University. A main objective of this test campaign is the investigation of the influence of residual vacuum pressure on the thruster's performance. Results of these measurements will be presented at the next SRC Workshop, that will take place mid-October, in London.
