W elcome to the Plasmadynamics and Electric Propulsion Laboratory (PEPL) at the University of Michigan Department of Aerospace Engineering . The lab was founded in 1992 under the direction of Associate Professor Alec Gallimore and since that time has been embarked on an experimental and theoretical program with the following goals: 1) To make electric propulsion (EP) devices more efficient and of better performance; 2) To understand spacecraft integration issues which could impede the widespread use of these devices on scientific, commercial, and military spacecraft; and 3) To identify non-propulsion applications of EP systems (e.g., plasma processing, space-plasma simulation). The centerpiece of the laboratory is the large vacuum test facility that was built in the early 1960s by the Bendix corporation and was later donated to the university in 1982. This cylindrical stainless-steel clad tank, which is 9 m long and 6 m in diameter, is the largest vacuum facility of its kind at any university in the nation. At high-vacuum, the chamber employs seven cryopumps, with a combined pumping speed of 500,000 l/s on air, and 240,000 l/s on xenon.

Prepared at NASA Glenn by the Learning Technologies Project (LTP) to provide background information on basic aerodynamics and propulsion for secondary math and science teachers. Includes interactive animated illustrations of many concepts.
Beginner's Guide to Aeronautics
Welcome to the Beginner's Guide to Aeronautics Beginner's Guide to Aerodynamics How do airplanes work? Why does a wing change shape on takeoff and landing? Beginner's Guide to Propulsion How do jet engines work? Why are there different kinds of jet engines? Beginner's Guide to Model Rockets The Beginner's Guide to Model Rockets will show you the basic math and physics that govern the design and flight of model rockets. Beginner's Guide to Kites The Beginner's Guide to Kites will show you the basic math and physics that govern the design and flight of kites. I n the 21st century, airplanes are a normal part of everyday life. We see them fly over, or read about them, or see them on television. Most of us have traveled on an airplane, or we know someone who has. Do you ever wonder how airplanes fly? What causes the lift that gets the airplane off the runway? How does a pilot control the movement of the airplane? Why are the engines on an airliner different from the engines on a fighter plane? How does aerodynamics affect the flight of a model rocket or a kite? The information at this site is provided by the NASA Glennn Learning Technologies Project (LTP) to give you a better understanding of how aircraft work. Each page at this site describes a single topic related to basic airplane aerodynamics, propulsion, model rockets, and kites. At the top of each page is a slide that illustrates the topic. The slide is accompanied by a caption that explains what the slide is all about and goes into some detail about the physics and math related to the subject of the slide. There are often links and references to other slides and sites where you can find additional information.

of Boeing's commercial XIPS (Xenon Ion propulsion System). Designed for satellites, but a specialized version of it was used on NASA's Deep Space 1 spacecraft.......
In October 2000, The Boeing Company acquired three units within Hughes Electronics Corporation: Hughes Space and Communications Company, Hughes Electron Dynamics, and Spectrolab, Inc., in addition to Hughes Electronics' interest in HRL, the company's primary research laboratory. The four are now part of Boeing's newest subsidiary, Boeing Satellite Systems, Inc.

XIPS: The Latest Thrust in Propulsion Technology
With the delivery of the PAS-5 satellite to PanAmSat Corporation in 1997, Hughes Space and Communications Company launched a new era in satellite propulsion technology. PAS-5 is the world's first commercial satellite to carry a revolutionary propulsion system which is 10 times more efficient than the systems currently in use: xenon ion propulsion. By the third quarter of 2000, 11 on-orbit satellites were using XIPS. The xenon ion propulsion system, or XIPS (pronounced "zips"), is the culmination of nearly four decades of research into the use of electric propulsion as an alternative to conventional chemical propulsion.

Mini-Magnetospheric Plasma Propulsion (M2P2) is an advanced plasma propulsion system that will enable spacecraft to attain unprecedented speeds, with minimal energy and mass requirements. It will create a large scale magnetic bubble around the spacecraft to ride the solar winds, and accelerate the spacecraft to unprecedented speeds.
A new large chamber has recently been installed at the University of Washington for continued prototype testing. The new chamber has 10 times the volume of our initial change and more easily allows the inflation to be optimized without strong wall interactions.

75. Centrospazio Home
A space technology research laboratory specialized in Electric propulsion development and testing Hall thrusters, FEEP systems, MPD thrusters, arcjets.
Welcome to Centrospazio
Centrospazio is a space technology laboratory set up in 1989 in the outskirts of Pisa. Founded and directed by Prof. Mariano Andrenucci , Centrospazio was established as a part of Consorzio Pisa Ricerche (Pisa Research Consortium), jointly formed in 1987 by the University of Pisa , the National Research Council ( CNR ) and the Italian Institute for Public Enterprise (IRI). Through the consortium scheme Centrospazio retains a close link with the Department of Aerospace Engineering of the University of Pisa, sharing part of its personnel and resources and serving as a top-level laboratory for graduate students and researchers. On the other hand, Centrospazio's own staff can be tailored to the needs of ongoing activities, and its own separate administration gives it the possibility to undertake contracts and interact with industrial counterparts and funding bodies with the promptness and the flexibility of a private enterprise.
Centrospazio's facilities are primarily intended to perform experimental activities requiring simulated space vacuum. However, it hosts a variety of other activities ranging from theoretical and computational studies to other types of space oriented experiments not involving vacuum simulation. Centrospazio's premises are located in an industrial estate for the development of small to medium sized businesses, about 10 minutes distance from the city centre, main railway station and the airport.
Since its opening Centrospazio has been primarily active in the development of

Welcome to the world of OmniThruster ...Where it pays to Compare!
Product Profile
For 25 years OmniThruster has been a world leader in the development of waterjet maneuvering systems. Our unique, patented designs, which provide diverse maneuverability and auxiliary propulsion, have been the installation choice on vessels worldwide. An OmniThruster produces thrust continuously ... with nozzles in or out of the water... in rough seas... in strong currents... while pitching, yawing, rolling, or heaving. An OmniThruster can even produce thrust while the vessel is underway at several knots, a condition in which conventional propeller tunnel thrusters are subject to cavitation and do not produce thrust, if at all. OmniThruster's patented system consists of five basic proprietary building blocks:
  • Kinetic Converter takes input shaft energy and produces usable hydraulic energy by the use of a mixed flow impeller. Steering Vanes continuously meter, or proportion, a percentage of the fluid flow to one or both sides of the vessel. Nozzles accelerate the mass of water creating a thrust force at the hull interface.

Travel to the nearby star systems using maximum velocities greater than 0.5 light speed can be initiated using essentially current technology. After placing the Power Collector Beam Collimator/ Controller Station in solar orbit and placing the assembled Interstellar Vehicle in earth geosynchronous orbit, the Alpha Centauri system can be reached in less than 10 years An operational concept is presented with high level design descriptions supporting this assertion. The design, development, test, and production of this system will be a global economic driver exceeding that of the combined effects of the jet transport and information service processing industries of the 20th century. Can such a rising tide fail to lift each boat? This will generate a veritable economic tsunami! Interstellar exploration and the colonization of extrasolar planets will provide a source of immense enhancement of human species survivability;
