dc.description.abstractIn the previous semesters, a mission was designed for a cubesatellite to enter a low-earth orbit and take pictures of weather patterns. To overcome drag and provide essential correction maneuvers, a resistojet would be designed that can support a mission life of at least a year. The primary goal of this project is to design, build, and test this resistojet to obtain values such as the thrust produced and the specific impulse of the thruster. In order to accomplish, a thrust stand will also be designed and built. The thrust provided by resistojets is too low to be measured with traditional thrust stands. To accurately measure the typical thrust produced by a resistojet, the thrust stand would need an accuracy of about ±0.1 mN, since thrusts are around 10mN.en_US
