Space Systems – Ion Thrusters
An ion thruster is a form of electric drive used for in-mission spacecraft propulsion with uses such as orientation and positioning of satellites and interplanetary propulsion of low-mass robotic vehicles. Rad hard GaN enables smaller, lighter, more efficient power supply to these systems, increasing the power delivery.
- Higher efficiency
- Increased power delivery
- Smaller size/lower weight
