We have already reached the 18 months in the PROMETEO project! Thus, we are sharing some of the project’s research outcomes.
In this sense, you can find these technical notes in the section scientific results. These are the joint results from EP2 and LFN research, in collaboration with the associated researchers and companies.
Within PROMETEO project, EP2 researchers have a new spatial plasma-fueled engine capable of satellite and spacecraft propulsion, with magnetic field geometry and configuration that would minimize losses on walls and their erosion, thereby resolving issues of efficiency, durability, and operating restrictions of engines that are currently in orbit.
Thus, this new engine opens up an entirely new dimension in space transportation, since it will allow less expensive, more efficient, and longer space missions.
Watch the full video interview to researcher Mario Merino:
If you are interested in the PROMETEO’s research lines, have an University Degree (BSc or MSc) with an excellent academic record and have a strong background in field such as plasma physics, propulsion, electronics and CAD design and/or experimental work in a laboratory, we have published a job offer for a “Personal Investigador de Apoyo”.
As a pre-doc researcher you will be part of the team in charge of the development of a hybrid code for magnetized plasma thruster discharges.
