As space missions probe deeper and last longer, electrified propulsion systems powered by Hall-effect thrusters are proving their mettle. One company leading the way is Busek, a pioneer in Hall-Effect technology for aerospace whose thrusters will be aboard NASA Artemis missions seeking the return of humans to the moon. […]
Always a showcase for cutting-edge technology in aerospace progress, SpaceTech Expo-Europe will have an assortment of magnetics-based solutions on display when it opens in Bremen, Germany on November 14. Advancements in propulsion using Hall-effect thrusters for microsatellites, magnetometry and component designs will be among the solutions exhibited. ExoTerra, Enpulsion and Thermocoax are among the companies involved in Hall-effect thrusters. Other exhibitors involved in magnetic technologies include Bartington Instruments, Pfeiffer Vacuum, Stirling Cryogenics, plus numerous others. Magnetics Magazine is a long-time media partner of the event.
