Re: AO-40: 400N burn before arcjet?



The Orbital Mechanics needed to put the satellite into a stable and higher
orbit are very precise.
>From what I understand about the 400 Newton engine is that it requires very
little fuel to make the needed adjustments.

It is also more controllable than other types and it requires a smaller
space/mass ratio.

I am going to try to research some more info about the small engine!
