A pulsed plasma thruster (PPT) and a method of making the pulsed plasma thruster are disclosed. The PPT includes no moving parts and is able to achieve a small size. The PPT is also designed to facilitate easy and rapid manufacture. The process for making the PPT uses known techniques for making printed circuit board devices. Another PPT also has no moving parts and uses a liquid fuel that is progressively advanced by capillary action.


What is claimed is: 1. A PPT comprising: a housing formed by at least one substrate and including a thruster aperture; the thruster aperture including a first conductive layer, a first fuel layer, an igniter device, a second fuel layer and a second conductive layer; a main discharge capacitor and a power supply in electrical communication with the first conductive layer and the second conductive layer; a trigger in electrical communication with the igniter device; and wherein the substrate is formed of a Printed Circuit Board. 2. The PPT according to...
