The endurance test running at SITAEL premises in Pisa was intentionally stopped after the total impulse cumulated by the thruster exceeded 75 kNs.

Thruster performance at the moment of test interruption were still excellent: the thrust provided was 85% of the initial value and the plasma beam divergence was not significantly larger than at the beginning of life. This is an outstanding result, being the longest firing time ever recorded for a thruster of this class (< 200 W) and making HT100 a perfect candidate as a primary propulsion system for small satellites of the next generation.
