Q-thruster Breadboard Campaign Project

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

<p>Q-thruster technology is a mission enabling form of electric propulsion and is already being traded by NASA&#39;s Concept Architecture Team (CAT) &amp; Human Space Flight (HSF) Architecture Team (HAT) as an electric propulsion effector for Asteroid Recovery Vehicle (ARV) mission extensibility options out to Mars.&nbsp; The Nuclear Electric Propulsion mission allows for rapid transit while allowing for a heavy, more near-term reactor design and the Solar Electric Propulsion mission allows for a power starved approach with similar mission durations to Design Reference Architecture - DRA 5.0 that would not be possible without the Q-thruster technology.</p>
