Short Description

The company is a Polish start-up that has been operating in the space industry in Krakow since 2019. The company designs, manufacture, and sells propulsion systems for small satellites, in particular nanosatellites.

Our company performs research and development on a variety of propulsion technologies – both electric and chemical. The company’s goal is to market ready-to-integrate propulsion systems for private companies in the space sector. Our products will be used to maintain satellite constellations, change and maintain orbit, control orientation, and remove old satellites by deorbiting.

We implement projects financed by the National Centre for Research and Development, the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development, and we cooperate with the European Space Agency.
