Abstract: Under the application background of modern global communication and navigation,the abilities of precise orbit prediction and real-time orbit control of satellite platforms request better performances such as thrust accuracy and resolution ratio,so it is significant to construct high-precision electric propulsion system.According to the survey of the space application demand and the research status of electric propulsion technology,it is demonstrated that the output accuracy of thrust under current technology can not satisfy requirements of missions such as the high-precision continuous navigation,the real-time drag compensation of super low orbit satellites and imaging during the movement of high-resolution remote sensing satellites.Taking the Hall effect propulsion system as the research object and focusing on the technical difficulties of high-precision electric propulsion system,the research status at home and abroad was depicted,the development trends and the research routes of the key techniques were analyzed and discussed from the aspects of electric thruster technology,mass flow control technology,power supply and control technology as well as testing technology.The future focal directions of research and development were suggested for high-precision electric propulsion technology.

Key words: high precision Hall electric propulsion, discharge stability, mass flow control, digital power supply, electric propulsion testing
