In smaller spacecraft such as CubeSat satellites, a salt-based monopropellant is showing promise. It can be used both in high-thrust chemical propulsion for fast time-sensitive maneuvers, and electric mode for slow maneuvers, such as orbit maintenance. Now, researchers in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have more knowledge about how it performs under pressure to inform rocket design.
