MicroThrust is a European consortium within the European Commission Framework Programme 7 (FP7) targeting advanced in-space propulsion technologies for solar system exploration. The consortium aims to develop a key component in facilitating exploration missions: a technology that can substantially reduce the cost of science Earth observation missions. Building on the framework of a successful ESA study, the MicroThrust team of leading academics, research institutions and space companies has developed a conceptual design of a very small, yet highly performant electrical propulsion system.
