The Pocket Rocket

The central topic of my PhD research, the Pocket Rocket is a radio-frequency capacitively coupled electrothermal microthruster. Designed for use on CubeSats the Pocket Rocket operates on very low power, typically < 50W, and produces thrusts in the range of 1-10 mN. My work involved the numerical modelling and experimental validation of the device for … Continue reading The Pocket Rocket
