Ion-Powered Space Probe
This probe requires a launcher, as the ion engine doesn't provide enough thrust even to leave the ground. The Z-MAP Satellite launcher is capable of bringing this probe into orbit.
Two PB-NUK Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generators, mounted on opposite sides, are its only electric generators. They are buffered by four Z-100 Rechargeable Battery Packs. As the generators aboard don't generate enough electricity and some is needed to run the command module, the ion engine can only run up to 10% of its maximum thrust. This limits the maximum force applied by the engine to about 50 N or completely dry an acceleration about 0.08 m/s².
