Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 March 2024 | Viewed by 1394
Interests: space electric propulsion technology; gas discharge; high voltage technology
Space electric propulsion, due to its main characteristics of high specific impulse and micro thrust, is playing an increasingly prominent role in space engineering such as long-life satellites, deep space exploration, and non-drag control, becoming the forefront of space propulsion technology and receiving attention from countries around the world. The successful applications of the Smart-1, Hayabusa, Deep Space 1, and Shijian satellites mark the gradual maturity of electric propulsion technology and the increasing importance in the future of the aerospace field. Space Electric Propulsion Technology has gone through a long period of development and reserve, and has made solid progress in ion thruster, Hall thruster, Arcjet, Pulse Plasma Propulsion, Magneto Plasma Dynamic (MPD) thruster, Colloid and electrospray thrusters, and other aspects. Electric propulsion is currently considered by all space actors as a key and revolutionary technology for the new generations of commercial and scientific satellites. Initiatives in this field all over the world are aimed at the development of competitive new generations of electric propulsion systems for the different types of markets and applications. We hope this Special Issue on the topic of Space Electric Propulsion Technology can expand the latest research achievements in electric propulsion technology and its applications.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Aerospace is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
