NEXTFLOW & ZARATHUSTRA Project Meeting – FEB 2022

The first joint workshop between the ERC Starting Grant projects NEXTFLOW (Next-generation flow diagnostics for control) and ZARATHUSTRA (Revolutionizing advanced electrodeless plasma thrusters for space transportation) took place this week. The workshop brought together the research teams of the two projects to discuss common interests and foster collaboration.

The presentations of the workshop covered the ongoing activities on the two projects, and the discussion focused in particular on data-driven analysis and measurement enhancement techniques, which are transversal and applicable to electric space propulsion and aerospace flow control. The PIs of the two projects find the exchange fruitful and look forward to collaborate in the near future.
