Support the exploration and study of our Solar system obtained by electric propulsion using available in situ resources for harvesting of the necessary propellants is addressed. This technology should contribute to related R&D development, allowing also for exploitation of the available resources. Specifically, dedicated global models of interest and concomitant diagnostics are shortly described and discussed.
