Why are mineral insulated heaters used in aerospace propulsion systems?

Aerospace propulsion systems are known for their extreme environments. For example, because of the high temperatures, high pressure, high radiation or hypervelocity that can occur. Mineral insulated heaters or cables are a proven solution to reach high temperatures in these challenging environments.

What is a propulsion system?

A propulsion system is a machine that generates thrust to push, for example, an satellite forward. Mineral insulated heaters or cable are widely used in aerospace propulsion systems of mineral insulated heaters fit these extreme environments very well because of their long durability and high temperature resistance.
