iodine Fed Advanced Cusp field Thruster

iFACT (iodine Fed Advanced Cusp field Thruster) is a H2020 collaborative that aims to further develop the Advanced Cusp Field Thruster (ACFT) technology, using iodine as propellant and a neutraliser based on calcium aluminates.

The iFACT subsystem, combining simplicity with efficiency, will be an extremely cost effective electric propulsion device that can be used in a wide power range and for many applications, such as satellite constellations or telecom satellites but also for Earth observation and science missions.

The iFACT project officially started in January 2020 and will have a duration of 24 months. The total budget of the project is approximately 2M €, funded by the European Commission under H2020-SPACE-2019 topic SPACE-13-TEC-2019 “SRC – In-Space electrical propulsion and station keeping” (Grant Agreement number 870336).
