Do More With Your Spacecraft
It’s Time to Eliminate Single-Use Spacecraft
Nothing else is limited to one tank of fuel...
…cars, planes, boats, and even rockets refuel
Satellites Dedicate up to 75% of Mass to Propellant
Propellant is needed for orbit insertion, raising, and maintenance, as well as maneuvering and deorbiting.
When You Design for Refueling, You Free up Mass Budgets...
Trade fuel mass for payload mass, or decrease launch costs
Get More From Your Missions...
Get to orbit faster, do more while there
And Unlock Novel Business Models
Secure commercially viable and sustainable businesses
Refueling Saves Billions in Replacement Costs
And Ensures Sustainable Operations, Minimizing Space Debris
When satellites run out of propellant, they either burn up in the atmosphere or are sent to a graveyard orbit. If they run out unexpectedly and cannot refuel, they become dangerous space debris.
