"This dissertation presents work on development of multi-mode specific spacecraft propulsion systems. Specifically, this work attempts to realize a single propellant capable of both chemical monopropellant and electric electrospray rocket propulsion, develop methods to characterize multi-mode propulsion system performance, and realize a system capable of both monopropellant and electrospray propulsion for a small spacecraft. Selection criteria for ionic liquid propellants capable of both monopropellant and electrospray propulsion are developed. These are based on desired physical properties and performance considering use

The standardization of small spacecraft through CubeSats has allowed for more affordable space exploration. This progress in affordability has been limited to Earth orbit due in part to the lack of high [delta]V propulsion systems that are compatible with the small form factor. The ion Electrospray Propulsion System developed at the Space Propulsion Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is a promising technology foundation for a compact, high [delta]V propulsion system. However, the [delta]V output of

Recent advances in the development of highly conductive ionic liquids have made them of interest for use as propellant in spacecraft propulsion systems. Electrospray thrusters apply strong electrostatic fields to an ionic liquid in order to extract and accelerate charged particles, producing thrust. The behavior of these ionic liquids as they pass through the components of an electrospray system can have a significant effect on thruster operation. The wetting and adhesion behavior between the ionic liquid propellant and solid materials

High specific impulse electric propulsion systems enable ambitious lunar and interplanetary missions that return a wealth of scientific data. Many of these technologies are difficult to scale down, meaning the spacecraft are relatively massive and expensive. The Space Propulsion Lab (SPL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is developing compact, high specific impulse ion electrospray thrusters which do not suffer from the same sizing limitations. The Ion Electrospray Propulsion System (iEPS) is tailored for small spacecraft and can perform

Small satellites are changing the space scene dramatically. By drastically reducing costs while still having impressive technological capabilities, their popularity among the space community is increasing at a very fast rate. Propulsion systems for these class of spacecraft are very limited. One promising technology is the ion Electrospray Propulsion System (iEPS) developed at the Space Propulsion Laboratory at MIT. Electrosprays accelerate ions present in the interface between an ionic liquid and vacuum using strong electric fields. Current thrust estimates for

This work investigates the effect of the temperature on the structure of electrospray beams. Electrospraying is a technique used to atomize charged liquids. From the different operational modes, the cone-jet mode is characterized by its stability [1] and is used in several applications as mass spectrometry [2], nanodroplets sputtering [3] or space propulsion (colloid thrusters). Colloid thrusters are electrostatic accelerators of charged particles. The very low thrust that a single needle provides can be used for precision spacecraft positioning and drag cancellation missions.

Micronewton electrospray thrusters are a promising new actuator for CubeSat attitude control. Electrospray thrusters have advantages over current state of the art CubeSat attitude actuators in mass, volume, and their ability to produce translational acceleration in addition to control moments. An attitude determination and control system was designed for a 1U CubeSat assuming commercial-off-the-shelf attitude determination hardware components and six electrospray thrusters developed by the MIT Space Propulsion Laboratory. A high fidelity spacecraft dynamics simulation was constructed for analysis of

This thesis presents the design, fabrication and testing of a fully-integrated planar electrospray thruster array, which could lead to more efficient and precise thrusters for space propulsion applications. The same techniques could be used for making arrays to increase throughput in many other electrospray applications. Electrospray thrusters work by electrostatically extracting and accelerating ions or charged droplets from a liquid surface to produce thrust. Emission occurs from sharp emitter tips, which enhance the electric field and constrain the emission location.

Electrospray thrusters are an attractive technology for small satellite propulsion. A thorough study of the spacecraft charging and attitude control performance of electrospray thrusters acting on a small satellite is presented. The experimental portion of the study employs a new type of magnetically levitated testbed to measure thrust, characterize spacecraft charging phenomena, and demonstrate precision attitude control maneuvers. The testbed magnetically levitates a mockup-satellite in vacuum conditions. The satellite carries thrusters, batteries, radio, and high voltage thruster electronics. The magnetic

Franz Georg Hey summarises the development and testing of a micro-Newton thrust balance, as well as the downscaling of a High Efficiency Multistage Plasma Thruster to micro-Newton thrust levels. The balance is tailored to fully characterise thruster candidates for the space based gravitational wave detector LISA. Thus, thrust noise measurements in sub-micro-Newton regime can be performed in the overall LISA bandwidth. The downscaled thruster can be operated down to serval tens of micro-Newton with a comparably high specific impulse. About
