POSEIDON, one of the 5 « Chaires ANR industrielles » selected in 2016, is interested in « New plasma thrusters for satellites in low Earth orbit ». Coordinated by Anne Bourdon from the Laboratoire de Physique des Plasmas, this project gathers Ecole Polytechnique, CNRS and Safran Aircraft Engines in view of developing a new experimental and numerical methodology allowing to reduce the number of tests required for the development of future Hall effect thrusters. CERFACS brings its expertise for the 3D simulation of such thrusters with their real geometry.
