ELECTRIC PROPULSION SYSTEM

REGULUS-150

A scale-up version of REGULUS-50
for the in-space mobility of micro- and minisatellites.

APPLICATIONS

REGULUS-150 enables new mission scenarios and efficiently makes in-track maneuvers possible, compensates drag in VLEO and performs end-of-life operations.

ROBUST

REGULUS-150 technology derives from the Magnetic Enhanced Plasma Thruster technology. The absence of electrodes, neutralizer, grids, and any component subjected to deterioration, results in an increased system simplicity, making REGULUS-150 suitable for high Total Delta-V missions.

CUSTOMIZABLE

Different total impulses can be provided under specific customer requests, varying the tank size and thus the overall volume of the propulsion unit. The system is designed to work with Xenon, but other gases (e.g., Iodine, Argon, and CO2) can be used to meet customer needs.
