Low power consumption
Less power for the thruster results in more power for the payload. In addition, we limit
or remove the need for additional solar panels or a change of battery. Our Power
Processing Unit (PPU) is included in our system, so that you do not need to change
your battery or power system. Simply put, the total direct + indirect cost of our
system is dramatically lower than with competing solutions.
More missions in a given volume
An expensive launch for injection, a thruster for station keeping, a solid propulsion system
for deorbiting? Forget it. Do everything with our ExoMG thruster. A 2U system can allow a 15kg/12U
satellite to complete a 500 -> 800km altitude transfer, a 1° inclination correction to maintain
a Sun Synchronous Orbit (SSO) and deorbit at the end of its life. All of that whilst
still have fuel left.
We want to adapt our system to your platform, not the opposite. Therefore,
we limit the max power consumption and we use a modular approach to have a great
flexibility in the way we position our own subsystems. We adapt easily in 3 to 27U
standardised platforms and other customised ones. Easy translates to quick and cost-effective.
No risk of camera or spacecraft pollution with our neutral gas. Other technologies
using ionic liquid, iodine, titanium or indium can pollute your spacecraft.
Our Xenon can’t react with it: not because it is unlikely, but simply because
it is chemically impossible. Don’t risk losing your very state-of-the-art camera.
Streamlined business process
Our thruster is sourced & industrialised in Europe with the majority occurring
in France. We are developing our system with a customer approach to simplify
every step of the process, from mission design and manufacturing through to
integration and launch.
Adding propulsion to a satellite or to a constellation adds new challenges to
the operation system of these spacecrafts. We are here to help you integrating
the operation of the thruster to your operation system. And if you need
Phase 0 or Phase A-B analysis to design and optimise propulsion manoeuvres… contact us!
