The Rubicon Space Systems 0.1N Thruster is designed for satellite applications. The thruster weighs 58 grams and has a thrust range between 30 - 280 mN.
It has demonstrated 3.1 kg throughput over 17 hours of accumulated firing time, and over 65,000 pulses.
The thruster's duty cycles have ranged from 10 to 90% in pulse mode, with pulse trains as long as an hour at nominal operating conditions. The 0.1N thrusters are scheduled to fly on NASA's Lunar Flashlight 6U spacecraft, set for launch in December 2022.
