This papers gives an insight on different sub topics related to a micro-propulsion subsystem for a PocketQube. First, PocketQubes will be introduced and then Delfi-PQ will be presented, providing an overview of the mission for which this micro-propulsion system will be used. Step by step, the paper will explain the subsystem, its challenges, mechanical aspects, electronics aspects and future work. In the long term, these miniaturized micro-propulsion systems might play an important role for micro satellites for attitude control, low-altitude orbital maintenance, formation flying, orbital transfer and several other potential applications.
