We develop monopropellant, bi-propellant and hybrid propellant hydrogen-peroxide propulsion systems for in-space and access-to-space applications for small satellite platforms.

Our key technology for the oxidizer is highly-stabilized hydrogen peroxide, that is a green and non-toxic propellant.
We perform in-house concentration of our hydrogen peroxide, thus eliminating the transportation issues of highly concentrated H2O2 and allowing us to operate with a concentration level up to 95%.
In addition, we have an extensive expertise operating with nitrous oxide and gaseous oxygen.
We use paraffin wax for our hybrid propulsion systems. Paraffin wax is a green fuel. In combination with H2O2 as oxidizer, exhaust gases are water, steam and CO2. Thanks to its liquefying characteristic, it provides high regression rates, thus allowing simple single port fuel grains. Our paraffin has thermomechanical performance able to withstand launch vibrations and in-orbit temperature stresses. We can use also polyethylene and polyethylene/paraffine blends depending on customers’ request and on mission specifications.
For our bi-propellant propulsion systems we use kerosene as green propellant.
depending on customer needs.
|Toxicity||All the combinations are green, non-toxic and non-carcinogenic, providing minimum environmental impact|
|Concentration||90-95%. Tailored to customer requirements|
|Handling||Standard chemical protection suits, no SCAPE suits|
We carry out research and development activities
through a extensive combined numerical-experimental investigations
We are developing chemical rocket motors since 2006.
The research and development took place through different research programs, both financed internally and within FP7/H2020 programs in cooperation with major Aerospace companies.
