Propulsion

The Propulsion Subsystem is responsible to provide a measurable thrust to the spacecraft

The primary components are:

    1. Pulsed Plasma thruster
        • tungsten electrodes
        • sulfur propellant
    2. High voltage electronics
        • 2x flyback step-up converters
        • 20uF capacitor bank
    3. Logic control
        • Digital isolators
        • MSP430 microprocessor
