" Propulsion at Surrey - past, present and future"

Abstract:

The lecture will start by summarising the early propulsion work performed at Surrey by Jerry Sellers, then Tim Lawrence. It will cover the design and in-orbit performance of the two spacecraft flying propulsion, UoSAT-12 and SNAP-1. The current research will be discussed and how it may lead to flight opportunities. Finally the crystal ball will emerge and the possible future requirements will be reviewed."
