Die achte Deutsch-Russische Konferenz zu elektrischen Raumfahrtantrieben und ihren Anwendungen

Datum der Durchführung: 20.09.2020 - 25.09.2020
Ort:  Kaliningrad
Veranstalter:  Experimental Design Bureau FAKEL

The 8th Russian-German Conference on Electric Propulsions, their development and application in space will take place from 20th to 25th of September 2020 in Kaliningrad. Both fundamental and applied research works related to the development of various types of electric propulsions and their components, as well as their application on board spacecraft designed for different purposes will be the topic of the conference.

The Conference organizer is Experimental Design Bureau Fakel, RIAME in a co-operation with Justus Leibig University Giessen, Leibniz Institute of Surface Modification.

The Conference is intended for a contribution to the expanding co-operation between Russia and Germany both in industrial and scientific fields and also for strengthening of scientific relations between Russian and foreign scientists and specialists in the field of electric propulsions development.   

The Conference is timed to coincide with EDB Fakel’s 65th anniversary. EDB Fakel is one of the leaders in development and production of stationary plasma thrusters (SPT) and low-thrust propulsion systems on their basis. EDB Fakel is also a leading Russian company in development and production of thermal catalytic (Hydrazine propellant) thrusters and propulsion systems on their basis, as well as plasma sources for on-ground and space use.
