Abstract:

Theoretical models for the radiation from pulsed electric thrusters are given and predicted intensities and spectra are compared with measurements made on a particular thruster of this type. From this comparison the source of radiation is identified and the potential for interference with on-board satellite communications systems is estimated. Author
