CuSP Propulsion System


VACCO’s cold gas Micro Propulsion System (MiPS) provides attitude control and orbital maneuvering. SWRI’s CuSP program utilizes VACCO’s cold gas system to achieve highly reliable propulsion while serving as a space weather station.

The VACCO CuSP MiPS is approximately 0.3U in volume and uses four 25 mN cold gas thrusters to develop 69 N-sec of total impulse that provides 8.8 m/s of delta-V for an 8 kg CubeSat. Each thruster independently operates to perform both delta-V and ACS maneuvers through an integrated microprocessor controller.
