- To increase the performance and efficiency of high-power electric propulsion (EP) devices
- To identify and understand spacecraft integration issues that may prevent widespread use of EP systems on spacecraft
- To understand the life-limiting factors of EP devices
- To identify non-propulsion applications of EP systems (e.g., space-plasma simulation and re-entry flow simulation)
HPEPL conducts research controlled by the provisions of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) which is not discussed on this public website.
