The PEPL Mission
The experimental and theoretical research program is guided by three goals:
- To make electric propulsion (EP) devices more efficient and of better performance
- To Understand spacecraft integration issues that could impede the widespread use of these devices on scientific, commercial, and military spacecraft
- To identify non-propulsion applications of EP systems (e.g., plasma processing, space-plasma simulation)
