Super high thrust Cubesat propulsion

 

Dawn’s ESA standard qualified, green bi-propellent propulsion modules are for use in attitude, trajectory and orbit control of cube-sat size satellites and spacecraft.

0.5N and 1N thrusters are developed as a turn-key, simple bolt-on units for modular CubeSat structures. Units allow for multiple mounting configurations, giving CubeSat developers maximum flexibility in their design process. We have developed our cubesat propulsion modules in collaboration with Hyperion Technologies, a leading cubesat bus component manufacturer.
