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. […]
Leonardo DRS, Inc. recently announced that it has been awarded contracts valued at over $1 billion, when fully funded, to provide the integrated electric propulsion components for the U.S. Navy’s next-generation Columbia-class submarine. […]
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.
ThinGap has completed its latest large-size motor prototype, the TGO 385 for a commercial customer. The TGO 385 motor kit has an outer diameter of 385 mm (15 in.), and an axial height of 223 mm (9 in.), making it about the same volume as a 5-gallon bucket. The power output capability of the TGO 385 is estimated to be 100 kW or more depending on the application. […]
2023 promises to be an important year for electric propulsion innovator Wright Electric. Plans call for initial flight testing of its Wright Spirit regional aircraft retrofit technology, this stage employing one electric propulsor enroute to […]
As electrification of aircraft intensifies, French aerospace firm Safran intends to be onboard in many ways. It expects to broaden its portfolio in 2023 by acquiring the €124 million aeronautical electrical systems business of Thales. […]
