Franz Georg Hey summarises the development and testing of a
micro-Newton thrust balance, as well as the downscaling of a High
Efficiency Multistage Plasma Thruster to micro-Newton thrust
levels. The balance is tailored to fully characterise thruster
candidates for the space based gravitational wave detector LISA.
Thus, thrust noise measurements in sub-micro-Newton regime can be
performed in the overall LISA bandwidth. The downscaled thruster
can be operated down to serval tens of micro-Newton with a
comparably high specific impulse. About the Author Franz Georg Hey
works as mechanical, thermal, propulsion architect and technical
lead of the micro-Newton propulsion laboratory of Europe's leading
air and spacecraft manufacturer. The author is participating on
major programmes for future satellite and electric propulsion
development. The author's research is performed in close
collaboration with the Dresden University of Technology, the
University of Bremen and the DLR Bremen.
