PRODUCTSFor over 25 years Busek has developed leading edge electric propulsion thrusters to enable a new class of spacecraft missions.After early research efforts in plasma physics, Busek spent years developing Hall Effect Thrusters, culminating in the launch of the first US-based Hall Thruster on TacSat-2 and more recently the launch of FalconSat-5, featuring another Busek Hall Thruster.Busek also has been actively developing micro-Pulsed Plasma Thrusters, featuring the use of a solid Teflon propellant. Capable of delivering precision impulse bits, Busek delivered several pulsed plasma thrusters that flew successfully on FalconSat-3. As part of the NASA-ESA joint effort to validate one of Einstein’s last unproven predictions, Busek delivered precision electrospray thrusters capable of ultra low-noise thrust for the Lisa Pathfinder mission. This technology has also enabled the development of an efficient NanoSat / CubeSat electrospray propulsion system. Busek is currently making advancements in electrothermal propulsion systems, micro-resistojets, and RF ionthrusters. In the course of these efforts, Busek has developed unique support systems to create complete, rugged systems – including valves, cathodes, power processing units and digital control interface units.
