In Orbit Demonstration in 2017:
The IFM Nano Thruster has been the first European Thruster that has been sold to a commercial constellation. Since then, several companies have chosen this technology for their satellites in the range of 3-100kg satellites. ESA has recently chosen the IFM Nano thruster as the best possible thruster for the 6U e.inspector platform.
Now don’t think that this is a sales pitch….. It’s not. When I saw this information it reminded me of the “erectorsets”. You should watch the video. In layman’s terms…. you have very small thrusters that fit together, like Legos, in what ever configuration that is required. (More weight… connect more thrusters)
