Title (EN) SATELLITE WITH INTEGRAL THRUSTERS
(FR) SATELLITE À PROPULSEURS INTÉGRÉS
Abstract:
(EN) A satellite (10) has thrusters (18) that are integral parts of its frame (12). The frame defines cavities therein where thrusters are located. The thrusters may include an electrically-operated propellant and electrodes to activate combustion in the electrically-operated propellant. The frame may be additively manufactured, and the propellant and/or the electrodes may also be additively manufactured, with the frame and the propellant and/or the electrodes also being manufactured in a single process. In addition the thrusters may have nozzle portions through which combustion gases exit the thrusters. The thrusters may be located at corners and/or along edges of the frame, and may be used to accomplish any of a variety of maneuvers for the satellite. The satellite may be a small satellite, such as a CubeSat satellite, for instance having a volume of about 1 liter, and a mass of no more than about 1.33 kg.
(FR) Satellite (10) comportant des propulseurs (18) qui sont des pièces intégrées de son cadre (12). Le cadre délimite des cavités dans celui-ci où sont situés des propulseurs. Les propulseurs peuvent comprendre un agent de propulsion électriquement actionné et des électrodes pour activer la combustion dans l'agent de propulsion électriquement actionné. Le cadre peut être fabriqué de manière additive, et l'agent de propulsion et/ou les électrodes peuvent également être fabriqués de manière additive, le cadre et l'agent de propulsion et/ou les électrodes étant également fabriqués en un seul processus. En outre, les propulseurs peuvent comporter des parties buses par lesquelles les gaz de combustion sortent des propulseurs. Les propulseurs peuvent être situés dans les coins et/ou le long des bords du cadre, et peuvent être utilisés pour accomplir n'importe laquelle de diverses manœuvres pour le satellite. Le satellite peut être un petit satellite, tel qu'un satellite CubeSat, par exemple ayant un volume d'environ 1 litre, et une masse de pas plus d'environ 1,33 kg.
