PRODUCTS For over 25 years Busek has developed 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.
