    • Development of a vacuum arc thruster for nanosatellite propulsion 

      Lun, Jonathan (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-03)
      This thesis describes the development of a vacuum arc thruster (VAT) to be used as a potential low mass (< 500 g), low power (< 5–10W) propulsion system for nanosatellites. The thruster uses a high voltage capacitive ...
