Applications of Microthrusters on Astrophysics Missions with Demanding Jitter Requirements
·

Abstract

Future Astrophysics missions need improved pointing stability which is difficult to provide with reaction wheels, often the largest disturbance. Microthrusters developed for LISA could make it easier and cheaper to achieve tight pointing stability. The NASA Engineering and Safety Center is now studying benefits of microthrusters compared to wheels.
