AEROCUBE 8 is part of the small satellite program of The Aerospace Corporation, El Segundo, California. The AeroCube program deploys small satellites for technical demonstrations. Each of the two AeroCube 8 satellites is 1.5 Units in size and hosts a new electric propulsion system, new nanotechnologies and new innovative solar cell technologies that are to be tested in an operational space environment. The AEROCUBE 8 satellites demonstrate a Scalable ion-Electrospray Propulsion System (SiEPro) that is based on the extraction and acceleration of heavy ions using strong electric fields applied at the interface between the propellant and the vacuum of space. The system uses field evaporation to generate charged particles which has the advantage of not needing any reaction volume for the production of ions.
