A paper on the new reaction wheel developed at ASRI will be presented during the conference, to be held in Moscow, Russia, 30/5-1/6.
Ionthrusters are nowadays routinely used onsatellites for attitude control and fordedicated space missions, such as GOCE andDawn. The commonly used propellant for ionthrusters is the noble-gas xenon, whichcomprise some advantages such as highatomic mass, no chemical reactivity, andefficient ionization. One disadvantage ofxenon is the high price, which leads tohigh costs for testing and qualificationof thrusters. Potential candidates foralternative propellants are currentlyunder investigation in the electricpropulsion community.
