The ESMO teams
Propulsion System Gas Feed
|University||University of Stuttgart, Germany|
|Responsibilities||Cold gas thruster for ESMO attitude control|
The propulsion system gas feed (PSGF) team designs the cold gas part of the ESMO propulsion system. Its main tasks are to unload the reaction wheels, to support de-spin and manoeuvres of the spacecraft, to pressurize the main tanks and to provide a pre-acceleration prior to main engine operation. Additionally, the team develops the interface unit for the propulsion system to the on-board data handling and electrical power system.
