Built for CubeSats

Our innovative hybrid electrostatic thruster is available in a 0.5U or 1U form to provide the delta-V needed to meet your mission needs. With our proprietary software, we can provide propulsion, detumbling, and powerful pointing authority for your satellite. The ConstantQ is suitable for a wide range of mission objectives.

  • Orbital repositioning
  • Orbital insertion
  • Deorbiting operations
  • Orbit elevation from LEO to GEO
  • Close quarters maneuvers
  • Solid state detumbling operations

How it works

Our thruster creates self-neutralizing propulsion with electrostatic charge.
