SPCS-2 PAYLOAD, FALCONSAT-6 (EXPECTED LAUNCH MID-2015)   The Space Plasma Characterization Source, Mark II (SPCS-2) is currently under development at Busek Co. Inc.  This  payload is a reflight of the modified COTS 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.  This integrated 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).    CONTACT: Lawrence Byrne Program Manager larry@busek.com
