    April 6, The ion propulsion system on Deep Space 1 is the culmination of over 50 years of development on electric engine systems in ed on Oct. 24, , Deep Space 1 will be the first spacecraft to actually use ion propulsion to reach another planetary body. Propulsion means to push forward or drive an object forward. The term is derived from two Latin words: pro, meaning before or forward; and pellere, meaning to drive. A propulsion system consists of a source of mechanical power, and a propulsor (means of converting this power into propulsive force).. A technological system uses an engine or motor as the power source .

    Aircraft propulsion 2. Taking advantage of moving within a fluid, aircraft propulsion is achieved by air-breathing engines, i.e. engines that take a stream of air and throw it at higher speed backwards. The energy source is the combustion of a fuel (carried onboard) with oxygen in the air, but it might also be solar power or nuclear Size: 1MB. Integration of Propulsion Systems with Aircraft Systems Initial Step: Integrate the function of flight control and engine control • Link or combine the flight and propulsion controllers • Enhances propulsion performance ‒ Modes for takeoff, cruise, landing ‒ Better schedules for fuel economy ‒ Better control of emissions.

Performance Measurements The review of ion propulsion system performance measurements will focus on in-flight thrust measure- ments, thrust vector determinations, and mass flowrate measurement methods.

In-flight measurements of ion propulsion performance, ground test calibrations, and diagnostic performance measurements were reviewed.

It was found that accelerometers provided the most accurate in-flight thrust measurements compared with four other methods that were : James S. Sovey, Vincent K. Rawlin. Get this from a library.

An ion propulsion system converts spacecraft power into the kinetic energy of an ionized gas jet. As the ionized gas exits the spacecraft, it propels the craft in the opposite direction. An ion engine is fueled by xenon, a colorless, odorless, tasteless and chemically inert gas.

The xenon fuel fills a chamber ringed with magnets. Genovese, W. Steiger, M. Tajmar, Indium FEEP microthruster: Experimental characterization in the 1– µN range, AIAA Paperin 37th AIAA/ASME/SAE/ ASEE Joint Propulsion Conference, Salt Lake City, UT, USA, July 8–11, Google ScholarCited by: 4.
