High-Performance CubeSat and NanoSat Propulsion Systems & Modules
VACCO Industries manufactures a wide range of high-performance CubeSat and NanoSat propulsion systems and modules to meet customer needs. Numerous flight systems have been delivered to customers for a variety of missions and programs.
Cold Gas CubeSat Propulsion: Delta-V and CubeSat Attitude Control
VACCO has designed and developed a wide selection of cold gas propulsion modules with thrust levels greater than 50nM per thruster and total impulses from 23 N-s to over 700 N-s. The cold gas propulsion systems are coveted for their low cost propellant, ease of installation and simplicity of use. This low risk approach was chosen for the first interplanetary CubeSat propulsion module.
