Our customizable high-thrust propulsion systems enable lifetime extension and manoeuvring for 3-12U CubeSats and similar platforms.
Our PM200 propulsion module, developed by AAC Hyperion in in partnership with Dawn Aerospace brings lifetime extension and maneuvering for 3-12U CubeSats. With low system complexity and zero propellant toxicity to allow for simple and robust operations, both on the ground and when in orbit.
The PM200 offers high thrust propulsion capability to 3-12U CubeSats and similar platforms. With medium tank pressure and high storage density of liquid propellants enable high safety factor tanks to be used with little mass penalty.
The standard 1U configuration of the PM200 propulsion module can deliver in excess of 230 m/s of velocity increment to a 3U CubeSat of 4 kg at a nominal thrust level of 0.5 N. Through the use of additive manufacturing, the system is highly customizable. Design parameters such as total system delta-V, interface style and thrust direction can be changed on request and adapted to an existing CubeSat architecture. The PM200 can be seamlessly integrated with our line of integrated attitude determination and control systems to provide a fully integrated GNC and ADCS solution. The system makes use of pressure and temperature sensors to monitor system health and provide real-time thruster performance data.
The PM200 offers optionally active thrust vector control to minimize disturbance torque on the satellite platform and can be seamlessly integrated with the iADCS400 to provide a fully integrated GNC and ADCS solution.
The PM200 has an impressive ready to fire seconds are wake-up feature and a standard configuration with a 1U propulsion module, it can be configured to suit any CubeSat structure. It also features an I²C or RS422/RS485 compliant interface.
The PM200 can be seamlessly integrated with AAC Hyperion’ line of integrated attitude determination and control systems to provide a fully integrated GNC and ADCS solution. With
integrated thruster degradation and no measured thruster degradation, the PM20 allows for an undemanding operation for the most demanding missions.
Through the use of additive manufacturing, the system is highly customisable. Design parameters such as total system delta-V, interface style and thrust direction can be changed on request and adapted to an existing CubeSat architecture.
