Thermasat is a propulsion system for Cubesats that uses water as a propellant. The propellant is heated to high temperature steam through optical manipulation of incident sunlight. The optical system uses nano-structures known as photonic crystals to limit infrared emission. The propulsion system provides deployment, station keeping, and end of life de-orbit. Can provide propulsion for a 15kg Cubesat for a 10 year lifetime.
We are excited to announce that the Thermasat propulsion system has been selected for a National Science Foundation Phase I SBIR award! Keep an eye on the News section for updates!
Our mission is to develop next generation technology for the betterment of humankind
