Providing station keeping, constellation management, decommissioning and deorbiting to the small satellite market, Our MAPS™ solid propulsion system is highly configurable, compact and complete with high-performance capabilities. MAPS has been demonstrated and proven on a 3u CubeSat and is compatible with many satellites, such as a 6u CubeSat and larger.
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. Our MAPS solid propulsion system can be used for orbital maneuvers, decommission and deorbit with very precise and predictable delivered impulse. 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, has three independent inhibits against firing, and provides variable thrust by firing in pairs, triples, quads, etc. MAPS is adaptable and scalable and fits in unused separation system or other spacecraft real-estate.
