Hypernova Space Technologies Thrusters for small satellites

Cover image of Hypernova Space Technologies, Electronics venture on VC4A

Hypernova is building a breakthrough propulsion system for small satellites. Our vacuum arc thruster (VAT) uses solid metal as fuel. Not only is our VAT safer and more reliable than existing solutions, it is the only commercial propulsion system built to use materials from the Moon, asteroids, or other celestial bodies to refuel. Our vision is to make the promise of in-situ space resource utilization a reality in the next decade.
