An electrically-powered spacecraft propulsion system uses electrical, and possibly also magnetic fields, to change the velocity of a of these kinds of spacecraft propulsion systems work by electrically expelling propellant (reaction mass) at high speed.. Electric thrusters typically use much less propellant than chemical rockets because they have a higher exhaust speed (operate. Power and Propulsion Element PPE NASA-Unique Spaceflight Demonstration Objectives •Demonstrate high-power, 50kW-class solar array and electric propulsion technology in relevant space environments •Demonstrate continuous long-term electric propulsion operation sufficient to predict the xenon throughput capability and lifetime of high -power.

  This paper reviews solar sail trajectory design and dynamics, attitude control, and structural dynamics. Within the area of orbital dynamics, methods relevant to transfer trajectory design and non-Keplerian orbit generation are discussed. Within the area of attitude control, different control strategies, including utilisation of solar radiation pressure and conventional actuators, are by: 5. Guidance, navigation, and control (GN&C) The guidance, navigation, and control system is the most critical system on any spacecraft, responsible for executing the typical space mission operational functions such as orbital insertion, sun acquisition, Earth acquisition, science target acquisition, pointing and tracking, and orbital.

  The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite-R series (GOES-R) is the first of the next generation geostationary weather satellites. The series represents a dramatic increase in Earth observation capabilities, with 4 times the resolution, 5 times the observation rate, and 3 times the number of spectral bands. GOES-R also provides unprecedented availability, with less than  min Cited by: The 9th JANNAF Spacecraft Propulsion Subcommittee (SPS) seeks abstracts on the full array of spacecraft propulsion technology interests including electric propulsion, chemical propulsion, micro-thrust propulsion, solar thermal propulsion, nuclear thermal propulsion, aerocapture, solar sails, tether systems, and technologies for the future.

With literally hundreds of electric thrusters now operating in orbit on communications satellites, and ion and Hall thrusters both having been successfully used for primary propulsion in deep-space scientific missions, the future for electric propulsion has arrived.

Guidance, navigation and control (abbreviated GNC, GN&C, or G&C and within the context of NASA operations, often pronounced 'Gintsee' or (IPA) ʤɪnsiː) is a branch of engineering dealing with the design of systems to control the movement of vehicles, especially, automobiles, ships, aircraft, and many cases these functions can be performed by trained humans.

The focus of this study is to look at the specific requirements for a spacecraft that needs to go from earth to moon and back. In this regard we will identify the different GN&C problems in various phases of flight that need to be addressed for designing such a plug-n-play avionics system.

The Solar Electric Propulsion project is developing large solar arrays and high-power electric thrusters for an integrated in-space test-flight. Compared with current conventional chemical propulsion systems, at launch it will weigh two times less and use four times less storage for the electricity produced, and will operate at radiation levels.
