Motor designs that enable the control of ignition, combustion burn rate, extinguishment, and reignition of solid propellants by precise application of electrical power are provided. Design of such motors, including choice of electrode materials, the form of electric power, and exemplary facial-extent electrode and axial-extent electrode configurations are also provided.
What is claimed is: 1. A solid propellant thruster comprising: a thruster body containing a solid propellant; a source of electrical power in electrical communication with said solid propellant; and wherein the propellant ignites to produce a thrust only with the application of electrical power to the solid propellant from the source. 2. The solid propellant thruster as described in claim 1, wherein the magnitude of the thrust is dependent on the magnitude of the electrical power applied to the solid propellant. 3. The solid propellant thruster as ...
