Abstract:The miniaturization of space applicable devices by means of micro system technology (MST) is pursued by many research groups. MST devices are often designed as stand alone and require individual packaging which makes them still quite large. Focusing on the integration of several MST components has the advantage of reducing size and mass much more. An integrated and miniaturized feeding and thruster system for micro satellites is presented which consists of a valve, a particle filter, a pressure sensor and a nozzle. The first prototype valve has been fabricated and tested.
