FY15 GRC CIF High-Power Full-Scale Annular Engine (AE) Demonstration

Metadata Updated: May 2, 2019

The performance, and development and infusion rates of in-space electric propulsion (EP) systems must be increased to increase mission operational capabilities.[HTML_REMOVED] Today these systems are: unaffordable for many applications; and there is no EP technology that is scalable from 1600s to [HTML_REMOVED]4000s at power levels of interest. We believe these objectives can be achieved by developing the Next Generation Electric Propulsion Thruster (NGEPT); a GRC-patented modular EP device based on a new arrangement of relatively mature and proven technologies with the potential to yield revolutionary capabilities.[HTML_REMOVED] The design basis for the NGEPT is the Annular Engine (AE).[HTML_REMOVED] The AE delivers two revolutionary capabilities:It Enables Extensibility of Ion Technology to High Power at High Thrust DensityIt Creates a New Cost Paradigm for EP by Enabling a Reconfigurable Architecture
