Their expert analysis and review of extant literature suggests that at achievable temperatures, specific impulse can approach 1,000 s due to extremely high survivable bulk gas temperature and thermal dissociation of the water molecules to the atomic state. The following figure shows key design features of a Microwave ElectroThermal (MET) thruster showing the TM001TM011 Mode Field Pattern in the resonant cavity. This cavity mode provides excellent power coupling and positions the discharge in an optimal location upstream of the nozzle.
