Propulsion Systems

Hot gas systems based on Xenon or Butane and electrically heated thruster designed & manufactured at SSTL. These systems provide high performance in a small volume to minimise handling, propellant loading and shipping costs. These propellants prevent contamination of instruments, solar arrays and thermal surfaces.
