Bi
propellant

Simple, Versatile and Cost Effective bi-propellant hydrogen peroxide-kerosene propulsion systems to provide mobility to satellite platforms and microsatellite deployers providing up to 300 N of thrust.

KEY FEATURES
BENEFITS

Low cost

The system is specifically conceived to represent a trade off between costs and performances, targeting a substantial cost reduction respect to currently available MMH-N2O4 bi-propellant units.

Customizable

The system is customizable on thrust, expansion ratio and accommodation to fit specific customer needs.

Green

Hydrogen peroxide is a green non toxic oxidizer. Furthermore our system uses highly stabilized peroxide which, respect to MIL-Grade peroxide allows for reduced compatibility issues. Kerosene is also a green fuel.

Restartable

The system is restartable many times.

Throttleable

The system allows for a 1:5 throttleability.

Performance

Current delivered Specific Impulse of 285 s.

APPLICATIONS

Orbit raising, Orbit changes, Station-keeping, Decommissioning, KO motor.

ACHIEVEMENTS

The motor is under development since 2015. Several laboratory models have been developed and tested. A 300 N Engineering model is under development. Currently TRL 4.

DEVELOPMENT

An internal development is currently ongoing to target TRL 5.
