NanoFeep

Nanofeep is part of Sphere GO

In-space mobility first requires next-gen propulsion systems.

Details

The NanoFeep propulsion system uses a proprietary non-toxic alloy as propellant which is embedded within the unit itself and can fit in the palm of your hand. These systems can provide continuous thrust over many years with an unprecedented efficiency. Because of this efficiency, our customers will never have to worry about how collision avoidance maneuvers might impact their propulsion budget.

Our technology doesn’t need any valves, actuators, large tanks, pipes or expensive propellants. It also doesn’t generate excessive heat, interfering magnetic or electromagnetic fields.

HIGHEST EFFICIENCY

Compared to other propulsion systems, NanoFEEP can deliver the highest specific impulse on the market of up to 8500 s with a power consumption as low as 1 W.

LOWEST WEIGHT

We produce by far the lowest weight solution among all propulsion systems currently available on the market while delivering the highest delta-V potential.

LONGEST LIFETIME

With a lifetime of over 3 years of continuous operation, NanoFEEP is currently unmatched on the market in delivering stable continuous thrust over the lifetime of a satellite mission.

PROVEN TECHNLOGY

The FEEP technology has flown on numerous successful satellite missions for various applications including propulsion.

We developed the technology of the propulsion system during many years of research. At its core lies the FEEP technology specially developed for miniaturized applications using an alloy propellant, as well as a chip-based neutralizer with the corresponding supply and control electronics. All of the system’s components are optimized to deliver the best propulsion performance for the least amount of space, mass and necessary electrical power, which are the most valuable commodities on board of a satellite. Due to the system’s plug-and-play nature the integration into a satellite platform is easy and highly customizable in order to fulfill the propulsion requirements of almost all low Earth orbit missions.
