Two methods of improving the life and efficiency of the Pulsed Inductive Thruster

(PIT) have been investigated. The first is a trade study of available switches to

determine the best device to implement in the PIT design. The second is the design

of a coil to improve coupling between the accelerator coil and the plasma. Experiments

were done with both permanent and electromagnets to investigate the feasibility of

implementing a modified Halbach array within the PIT to promote better plasma
