Providing station keeping, constellation management, decommissioning and deorbiting to the small satellite market. Our MAPS™ solid propulsion system is highly configurable and compact, complete with high-performance capabilities. Demonstrated and proven on a 3u CubeSat, MAPS is compatible with many small satellites and spacecraft, such as a 6u CubeSat and larger. Qualifying as a cubesat propulsion system, our satellite thrusters are now flight proven!
MAPS is an array of high performance, hermetically-sealed, solid propellant rocket motors, all of which extend the orbital life of CubeSats and SmallSats while providing propulsion capability for small upper stages. The attitude control thrusters are customized for CubeSat propulsion systems configurations at least 3u CubeSat or larger. Our system can be used for orbital maneuvers, attitude control, decommission and deorbit with very precise and predictable delivered impulse. There is not nozzle and the module has no tanks, valves, tubing or heaters, making it a “plug and play” bolt-on design.
MAPS is instant on with a 10+ year life, uses very low power (consumes little electrical energy), has three independent inhibits against firing, and provides variable thrust by firing in pairs, triples, quads, etc. MAPS, being easily adaptable and scale-able, fits in unused space or other spacecraft real-estate, including a lightband separation system.
