Our mission is to develop the tiniest, most powerful and versitile space propulsion system.
Our first solution, ALEXIUS, is so tiny to fit within nanosats and so powerful as to allow micro-minisats the speedy accomplishment of high thrust manouvres.
In about 0.3 cubesat units (fuel excluded), up to 20N of thrust may be delivered, with specific impulse greater than 350s.
The system, patent filed in 49 countries and already issued in italy, is nowadays at TRL=4, with the goal of TRL=8, by q4/2021, and TRL=9, by q2/2022.
ALEXIUS allows to:
- Speed-up manouvres (de-orbiting, etc.)
- Bring forward, and then, extend sats operability
- Speed-up break-even point
- Increase revenues
- Increase r.o.i.
All that make it ideal for commercial, scientific, intelligence, defence and security applications.
This project, which started in march 2019, has already won many innovation awards and has received expressions of interest for hundreds of satellites worldwide.
Our second solution, ALBIREO, the ALEXIUS upgrade, will allow, with only one propulsion concept, both low and high-thrust manouvres (attitude, control and orbit changing), lowering the overall weight and complexity.
This innovative comprehensive system is already under development.
ALEXIUS and ALBIREO can be installed on satellites, their carriers, on interplanetary drones, on launchers’ last stages and on re-entry systems.
