Abstract: The characteristics and advantages of micro/nano satellite hybrid propulsion system are firstly introduced. The development status of micro/nano satellite hybrid propulsion technology is further summarized. Then, the tendency and problem are also presented on the basis of requirements of micro/nano satellite propulsion system. Based on these, the main key technologies that need to be overcome are introduced from the perspective of satellite engineering applications, including advanced integrated manufacturing, reliable low power multiple ignitions, improvement in specific impulse and efficient combustion. At last, the suggestions on development of the micro/nano satellite hybrid propulsion system in China are given.

Key words: Micro/nano satellite, Hybrid propulsion, Integrated manufacturing, Multiple ignitions, High specific impulse, Efficient combustion
