In this proceeding we present our ongoing micro-Newton thrust balance development, which ful�ls the LISA requirements. In the context of the development of highly precise thrusters for attitude control of satellites for future space missions, the development of test facilities for the characterising and quali�cation of thrusters is performed contemporaneously. The presented thrust balance has a resolution of 0:1 μN in a bandwidth between 1Hz and 10
