[Hi, I am sending this note to all local mailing lists I am a part of, to
allow small satellite enthusiasts / experimenters to take advantage of our
research work at GWU. Perhaps you could forward it to your friendly
neighborhood educational institution and affiliate looking for a method to
put up long duration missions in space - and in most probability head past
Low Earth Orbit within a decent time frame - referrals requested - Samudra
On behalf of the Micro-propulsion and Nanotechnology Laboratory, and Dr.
Michael Keidar, Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at George
Washington University, I am attaching the formal announcement of OMXP.
I hope all of you will consider making use of this innovative program from
our laboratory to enable your institution's CubeSat projects to include one
or more channels of small form, efficient and safer electric propulsion
subsystem at very low cost.
If you are interested to know more details, or wish to discuss specialized
applications of (electric) micro-propulsion in CubeSats, please follow the
contact instructions in the attached PDF. We are in the process of setting
up an online application portal soon.
Regards to all.
