Description

Busek’s BmP-220 micro-pulsed plasma thruster is a small multi-thruster delivering up to 175 Ns of impulse to CubeSats and micro-satellites. Novel, solid-state high voltage switching technology sources multiple emitters via a single self-contained power processing unit. The BmP-220 features long storage life and wide operational temperature range with no moving parts, no pressure vessel, and nontoxic Teflon propellant, making it ideal for secondary payloads or international Space Station deployment. Busek’s first generation pulsed plasma thruster, MPACS (Micro Propulsion Attitude Control System), successfully operated on FalconSat-3 (launched 2007). Each unit contains all the necessary electronics (PPU/DCIU), requiring only power and command input from the host spacecraft.
