Thrust matters

Our propulsion system has a higher thrust than competing ones. A high thrust means that you can do the same maneuver in less time – thereby allowing you to access revenues quicker.

Technology

A Hall Effect Thruster (HET) is a ion thruster in which electrons emitted by a cathode are trapped in a magnetic field, and used to ionize a propellant – thereby creating a plasma into the plasma chamber.

The plasma is then accelerated to produce thrust, thanks to an electric field created between the anode and the cathode.

The Hall Effect Technology has been used for decades and equips most of the large satellites thrusters, because it combines the high impulse of electric propulsion technology along with a very high thrust-to-power ratio.

Due to unique innovations on the plasma chamber, the cathode, and the fluidics system we manage to reduce the size of this technology to fit it in small satellites.
