PRODUCTS Busek develops leading edge electric propulsion thrusters to enable a new class of spacecraft missions. After early research efforts in plasma physics, Busek spent years developing Hall Effect Thrusters , culminating in the launch of the first US-based Hall Thruster on TacSat-2 and more recently the launch of FalconSat-5 , featuring another Busek Hall Thruster. Busek also has been actively developing micro-Pulsed Plasma Thrusters , featuring the use of a solid Teflon propellant. Capable of delivering precision impulse bits, Busek delivered several pulsed plasma thrusters that flew successfully on FalconSat-3 . As part of the NASA-ESA joint effort to validate one of Einstein’s last unproven predictions, Busek delivered precision electrospray thrusters capable of ultra low-noise thrust for the LISA Pathfinder mission. This technology has also enabled the development of an efficient NanoSat / CubeSat electrospray propulsion system. Busek is currently making advancements in electrothermal propulsion systems, micro-resistojets, and RF ion thrusters . In the course of these efforts, Busek has developed unique support systems to create complete, rugged systems including valves, cathodes , power processing units and digital control interface units .
