    including pulse rise time, mass flow rate, and arcjet geometry. 6 A hr/ cycle lifetest of a laboratory model thruster was completed 7 and flight-type systems have been built for life, performance, and satellite integration testing. 8,9 Langmuir probe surveys of the plume have measured electron number. An arcjet thruster has a constrictor and nozzle defining an arc chamber. The constrictor has an insulator and an anode. The constrictor defines a subsonic-to-supersonic transition zone axially coextensive with the inculator and anode. The anode is disposed side-by-side with the insulator and located upstream therefrom. A rod defines a cathode spaced from the anode by a by:

With commercial acceptance of second arcjet technology, the OBP program is now focused on low power arcjets (LPATs) for power-limited spacecraft. Over the past year, sub-kW arcjet systems have been considered for application to LEO/MEO orbit insertion, NSSK of power limited.

The results show that performance indices of the arcjet thruster with 1kW arc heating are improved by amount of % in thrust and % in specific impulse more than frozen flow.

type on low power arcjet thruster performance. Three kinds of gases, i.e. argon, nitrogen and nitrogen/ammonia mixtures simulating decomposed hydrazine, were used as the propellants. Important performance data, such as the thrust, the specific impulse, etc, were measured for various arc currents and mass flow rates.

An automated, cyclic life test was performed to demonstrate the reliability and endurance of a low power dc cycle arcjet thruster. The Surface Book really is the ultraportable that can do it all.

It's got great performance, strong battery life and a gorgeous inch touch screen with stylus support.4/5. A modeling study is conducted to investigate the effect of hydrogen content in propellants on the plasma flow, heat transfer and energy conversion characteristics of low-power (kW class) arc-heated hydrogen/nitrogen thrusters (arcjets).Cited by: Low power arcjet life issues.

By M. Simon, T. Hardy, S. Knowles and F. Curran. Abstract. The present evaluation of the results of arcjet engine lifetime testing attempts to deepen understanding of the electrode erosion process, with a view to its minimization. Attention is given to the compatibility of materials with N2H4, the.

The Interaction Heating Facility (IHF), with an available power of over MW, is one of the highest-power arc jets available.

It is a very flexible facility, capable of long run times of up to one hour, and able to test large samples in both a stagnation and flat plate configuration. Low power arcjet technology provided definitive work on atomic species plume concentrations in low power hydrogen arcjet plumes.
