The CHEOPS (Consortium for Hall Effect Orbital Propulsion System) is a challenging space project that proposes to develop three different Hall Effect Thruster (HET) Electric Propulsion Systems (EPS), each with specific requirements leading to specific improvements at system and subsystem levels, in order to serve different application fields or orbits:
Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) dual mode EPS to provide high thrust during transfer and high Isp during station keeping.
Low Earth Orbit (LEO) low power EPS, with a very low cost target for mass production.
High power, high thrust EPS for Exploration applications.
CHALMERS through the SED research group lead the Value Impact Analysis workpackage.
