Staging of space propulsion systems would allow lifetime limitations inherent to small propulsion systems to be bypassed in order to enable high-∆V capabilities for small spacecraft, in particular mass and volume constrained CubeSats. In addition, staging can be used to provide redundancy in the propulsion system, counteract thruster degradation, or open up new avenues ofdoi:10.2514/1.b37722 fatcat:ib4uiezwbbgwfjr3mjaljpfwf4
