Micro-Propulsion Plume Mapper Open Access

The Micro-propulsion and Nanotechnology Laboratory at the George Washington University is designing and building Micro-Cathode Arc Thrusters (uCAT) that will be flown on 'GWSat', a 3 U CubeSat that has been selected as part of NASA's CubeSat Launch Initiative (CSLI) program. To aid in the testing of the uCAT, the Micro-Propulsion Plume Mapper (MPM) was made. The MPM is an apparatus which is capable of holding an ion probe and traversing in 3 axis movement to map out the ion plumes that each of the uCAT expels.
