Alternative Title

Designing a low cost propulsion system for microsatellites

Abstract

"The University of Missouri-Rolla is currently working on development of its first satellite project. The project involves the design and construction of two satellites to demonstrate close formation flying while tethered together and untethered. To meet the mission objectives, the larger satellite will require an onboard propulsion system. The system will serve two purposes: three-axis attitude control and orbital maneuvering...The main objective of the prototype system is to verify that a functional system can be built for a reasonable cost. It will also allow the onboard computer subsystem to begin developing command algorithms to activate the thrusters when desired"--Abstract, leaf iii.
