SPCS-2 PAYLOAD, FALCONSAT-6 (LAUNCHED 2015) The Space Plasma Characterization Source, Mark II (SPCS-2) is a reflight of the Hall effect thruster (HET) payload flown on FalconSat-5. Since FalconSat-5 was unable to complete the experiment objectives due to electrical power system anomalies, FalconSat-6 will address many of the same SPCS objectives. The integrated ESPA-class propulsion-on-a-panel unit consists of a 200-800W Hall Effect Thruster, high speed plasma probe, propellant management system, power processing unit (PPU), instrument electronics and digital control interface unit (DCIU).
