Electric propulsion in space has become a key enabler for new types of missions, and to take current ones to new reaches. The very high performance of these systems allows for substantial saving in propellant mass, enabling for longer missions or farther reaches. However, they also present challenges, like the smaller force they can produce, the higher complexity of satellite operations, and the endeavour to miniaturise them for use in small satellites.
To find some answers to this questions, join today the virtual seminar co-organized by SITAEL and Politecnico di Milano. One of the presenters will be our own Camilla Colombo, talking about new missions enabled by electric propulsion.
