The Transfer Orbit Plasma Interaction Experiment (TROPIX) is a proposed scientific experiment and flight demonstration of a solar electric propulsion vehicle. Its mission goals are to significantly increase our knowledge of Earth's magnetosphere and its associated plasma environment and to demonstrate an operational solar electric upper stage. Viewgraphs on the Transfer Orbit Plasma Interaction Experiment (TROPIX) are presented. Objectives of this research are (1) to map the charged particles in Earth's magnetosphere from LEO to GEO at high inclinations; (2) to measure plasma current collection and resulting shifts in vehicle electrical potential from LEO to GEO across range of orbital inclinations; (3) to study spacecraft Author: Mark Hickman. Abstract. Viewgraphs on the Transfer Orbit Plasma Interaction Experiment (TROPIX) are presented. Objectives of this research are (1) to map the charged particles in Earth's magnetosphere from LEO to GEO at high inclinations; (2) to measure plasma current collection and resulting shifts in vehicle electrical potential from LEO to GEO across range of orbital inclinations; (3) to study spacecraft.

This book provides an insight into the state-of-the-art in electric propulsion. An attempt is made to portray the technology in a logical fashion, starting with mission requirements. Technology of the two dominant electric propulsion devices from basic physics through flight hardware is described.   James D. Burke, in Encyclopedia of the Solar System (Second Edition), Smart ESA's first lunar mission, Smart-1, was launched in with a small, highly advanced spacecraft demonstrating solar-electric propulsion, onboard autonomy, and several new instrument technologies. Spiraling slowly outward from Earth and then inward toward the Moon, the craft was captured by the . Book. Full-text available A solar electric propulsion flight experiment. The Transfer Orbit Plasma Interaction Experiment (TROPIX) is a proposed scientific experiment and flight. [13]. Two more decades will be necessary to see the solar technology used for the propulsion of electric model airplanes 2. Premises of solar aviation with model airplane On the 4th of November , the first flight of a solar-powered aircraft took place on the dry lake at Camp Irwin, California.
