Gas-Fed Plasma-Discharge Thrusters

SRL has been involved in gas-fed plasma thruster development.  This type of plasma discharge technology can be used to maneuver vehicles in low gravity fields. Impulse force is achieved by forming a traveling plasma front that accelerates the gas-fuel mass.  Both solids and water vapor are also useful as propellant fuel.
