Thruster Configurator

Enter your mission requirements below to see the attributes of an Aurora system that meets your needs. Specify either the Total Impulse you require or specify both the Spacecraft Dry Mass and Mission Delta-V. Each Aurora system is continuously throttleable from 100 W to 300 W. Because thrust, Isp, and efficiency vary as a function of operating power the table shows system performance impacts for a few discrete throttle points within the available range.
