SuperOks and MEPhI develop cooperation in the field of plasma technologies for space

On February 13, 2020, Deputy General Director Alexei Voronov made a presentation at the LAPLAZ-2020 plasma research and technology conference on the use of superconducting technologies in electric rocket technology. The conference was held at MEPhI. The report presented the achievements of SuperOx in this direction: tests of MTD engines with an HTSC magnet in a continuous mode, achievement of high indicators, in particular, 1 Newton thrust and an efficiency of more than 50%.

MEPhI is a leading Russian center of competence in the field of plasma physics. For several years, SuperOx has created a great reserve in the field of creating electric rocket engines with a HTSC magnet. Joint research is planned in this promising direction
