Electrical Propulsion

Electrical Propulsion

Flight Proven Hall-Effect Thrusters (HET) commanded by Power Processing Units (PPUs) implement a High Efficient Propulsion System which performs Orbit Raising, Station Acquisition and Station Keeping maneuvers of the GSATCOM telecommunications satellite systems.

Attractive launch mass savings and lifetime greater than 15 years is typically achieved with regard to full chemical or hybrid propulsion platforms.

Orbit transfer time is precisely shortened by combining the optimized geostationary orbit injection scenarios and the capability of the PPUs that efficiently allocates the full on-board power to the Hall-Effect Thrusters.

State-of-the-art Solar cells with 30+% efficiency provide high solar array power to launch mass ratio to support electrical propulsion and payload operation in compact satellite form factor.

odular and Scalable Design
