A micro-thruster for controlling the positioning of a satellite includes a solar concentrator for collecting solar energy and producing concentrated solar energy. A solar panel is positioned to receive the concentrated solar energy and thereby produces electrical energy which in turn energizes a diode-pumped fiber optic laser. The energized laser thus produces laser light which is transmitted to ejector material affixed to a satellite.
