The IFM Nano Thruster COTS+ is an updated version of the space proven IFM Nano Thruster. It leverages the proven design and offers increased radiation protection as well as electronic reliability.
All EEE components of the IFM Nano Thruster COTS+ are procured in lot-controlled batches. Selected sets of these batches are subjected to radiation testing, so that each thruster delivered to a customer can be traced back to a fully representative qualification model using components from the same batch.
The IFM Nano Thruster COTS+ is an updated version of the space proven IFM Nano Thruster. It is directly building on its heritage, leveraging the proven design and component selection.
The thruster is assembled into a protective casing that shields the electronics from the hazardous space radiation environment, facilitates handling during integration, and allows for either panel or side mounting.
Thrust can be controlled through the electrode voltages, providing excellent controllability over the full thrust range and a low thrust noise.
SAFE AND INERT SYSTEM
The IFM Nano Thruster contains no moving parts and the indium propellant is in its solid state at room temperature. This significantly simplifies handling, integration and launch procedures.
