Electric propulsion increases performances and reduces launch costs. Our unique proprietary innovations have allowed us to dramatically reduce the size of HETs to have a minimum impact on your mission and on your system. We develop the highest thrust electric propulsion system on the market – thereby dramatically reducing the time needed to do a propulsion mission. And we do that whilst maintaining a high total impulse density to minimize the impact on your system.

High flexibility & scalability
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.
High efficiency & ISP
HET Technology has the specific impulse (Isp) of an electric propulsion solution. 1kg of ergol will provide at least a 5X higher impulse than other water based or chemical solutions.
Xenon is an inert gas – period. Unlike Iodine, Indium, Titanium, Mercury –Xenon can not react with your spacecraft. It means that the risk of contamination is much lower than with competing technologies.
We believe that every customer has specific needs. This is why we adapt our propulsion system to your platform – not the other way round. This is achievable because we have a modular approach on our fluidics, electronics and plasmic components – we do not have to redesign everything.
