1-kW arcjet operating inside PEPL’s LVTF.
Tested at PEPL
NASA LeRC (now GRC)
The first electric propulsion device tested at PEPL was a 1 kW class arcjet from NASA Lewis Research Center (now Glenn Research Center). The arcjet operated on both hydrogen and simulated hydrazine decomposition products. The specific impulse peaked at ~800 s (hydrogen) at an efficiency of 30%.
