Abstract
Miniaturization technologies such as Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) have been used to fabricate a prototype 100-gm class cold gas propulsion system suitable for use on a Co-Orbiting Satellite Assistant (COSA). The propulsion system is fabricated from bonded layers of photostructurable glass (Foturan glass; the design is based on fabricating integrated modular parts. Thus, the propulsion system is mass producible, expandable, expendable (low unit cost), and highly integrated.
