The Corona Ionization (CorIon) Space Propulsion system is a novel electrostatic thruster, which combines the ionization and acceleration steps of conventional technology. The CorIon’s small size and simplicity are advantageous in many situations, such as for satellite station keeping and deep space probes. Experimental results are presented and compared to the theoretical model
