The Future of Spacecraft Propulsion Systems
Recently, we have seen some new trends in space propulsion or advancement propulsion technologies to allow for new capabilities. Some of these trends include additive manufacturing, green propellant or new propellants, miniaturized propulsion systems, cubesats and solar electric propulsion used in new ways. This panel will examine emerging trends in propulsion and discuss whether these game changers, flash in the pan concepts, enablers for new commercial products, and progressions as technology matures. What is really new and different in propulsion? Our launch experts will also look how these may shape the industry and whether it could allow more access to space.
