Prototype PCBs for AIS-gPPT3-1C Thruster Learning Kit

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

The prototype PCBs for the first ever AIS open source electric propulsion learning kit are in! The remaining parts should be arriving in the next few days. Once I fully qualify and test the kit, I will hopefully be able to make it available soon!

This kit is a 1:1 simulation of the AIS-gPPT3-1C pulsed plasma thruster with the same I/O as the actual thruster, controlling an LED to simulate the plasma plume during firing. The actual gPPT3 will be flying aboard the AMSAT-Spain GENESIS PocketQubes this September. If you can control the kit, you can operate the real thruster! More details to come soon!
