Imperial College London Micro-Scale ICE Cube Thruster Rocket Engine
Researchers at Imperial college London, under ESA’s General Support Technology Program (GSTP), are developing an Iridium Catalyzed Electrolysis CubeSat Thruster (ICE-Cube Thruster), which is essentially a micro-scale rocket engine. It uses hydrogen and oxygen propellants produced by the electrolysis of water and is designed to produce a thrust of just 4.5mN.
