Abstract

Electrodeless plasma thrusters (EPT) aim to improve propulsive performances, system simplicity and versatility. Their design has not been optimized for operation. The new EPT, with U-shaped plasma source geometry, aim to eliminate problems encountered with classic EPT and to enable differential thrust vector control without moving parts.
