Comet is a launch-safe and cost-effective electrothermal propulsion system that offers the ideal balance of cost and performance. This high-performance propulsion unit uses water as propellant, making the system easy to work with and easy to fuel. It’s highly-flexible interface is easy to integrate into your small satellite, regardless of size and form factor, and easy to operate on orbit.
Comet has also been optimized for minimal power consumption and shorter maneuvering times, allowing you to focus more resources on your payload. Comet is currently in production and shipping to customers, with the first three units scheduled to launch in Q1 2018.
