A thruster stack assembly and method for manufacturing the same is provided. The thruster stack assembly includes a plurality of grain elements having a common core region (e.g., a channel or passageway), where each grain element comprises a volume of electrically ignitable propellant. The thruster stack assembly further includes electrodes associated with the plurality of grain elements, the electrodes adapted for selectively igniting the plurality of grain elements. In one example, one or more of the grain elements may be ignited and combusted without ...
The invention claimed is: 1. A thruster assembly, comprising:a volume of electrically ignitable propellant, wherein the electrically ignitable propellant is ignitable in response to the application of electrical power there through;a pair of electrodes operable to ignite the propellant via application of electrical power there through; andan insulation layer disposed on at least one of the electrodes and operable to combust with the propellant.
