COMHET : a new stage in the LPP/SAFRAN collaboration on electric thrusters

Toutes les versions de cet article : [English] [français]

The LPP/SAFRAN collaboration on Hall thrusters began in 2014 as part of a CIFRE thesis and continued from 2016 to 2022 as part of the ANR industrial chair "POSEIDON future Plasma thrusters for LOw earth orbit SatEllIte propulsiON systems".

On November 16, 2023, Ecole Polytechnique, CNRS and SAFRAN signed the 4-year launch of "COMHET", a research collaboration known as a "joint laboratory" to strengthen collaboration between LPP and SAFRAN on fundamental research into the physics of magnetized cold plasmas in Hall-effect thrusters around three axes :

Axis 1 - Study of alternative propellants.

Axis 2- Numerical simulations.

Axis 3- Intelligent diagnostics.

With 225 joint laboratories in operation by 2022 - and a new one created every 15 days on average - the joint laboratory format proposed by the CNRS offers a flexible framework for accommodating different projects relating to a scientific theme over time, and enabling them to evolve within the framework of joint governance.

The French Defense Innovation Agency (Agence de l’innovation de défense), which reports to the Délégué général pour l’armement (DGA), has lent its support to COMHET by subsidizing the ValidHETion collaborative project within the framework of the CIEDS (interdisciplinary center for defense and security studies). This project is part of axes 1 and 2, with the aim of validating numericall tools by comparing them with experimental thruster measurements.
