Abstract : The leads to a heater for an electrothermal hydrazine monopropellant thruster comprise tungsten conductors wrapped with smaller diameter tungsten support wire and insulated with beads of alumina (Al2O3). A transition section connects the leads to regular leads. An attaching support wire is attached to the heater at one end and to the transition section at the other end. The insulated conductors and attaching wire are wrapped together with nickel ribbon to form a sheath.
