Enable your satellite mission with cost-effective in-space mobility.

The integrated propulsion system, that requires no integration.

SUPPORTED BY

IMMOBILITY

of Satellites

Expensive

Custom orbits can only be reached with extreme costs

Risky

Mission reconfigurations and space debris evasion are impossible

Non-compliant

Imminent space traffic regulations might render mobility mandatory

“A widespread perception of unmet demand for moving around small satellites in orbit is attracting companies to the last-mile logistics sector”

Maximum flexibility

GATE JETPACK

Plug-and-play

Universal compatibility with payload adapter which is already part of every satellite

Simple

Maximum user friendliness due to fully encapsulated design and simple integration

Low cost

Lowest procurement and integration costs on the market

UNIQUE TECH

Powers us

The GATE Jetpack is powered by the world’s first satellite thruster capable of transient deep throttling at constant performance in a ratio of 1:10 via single-parameter linear thrust control, differential thrust stabilization, and enhancement of combustion stability and ignition gentleness.

PASSION

Drives Us

We share a common passion for aerospace engineering, which exceeds our professional ambitions. Our diverse, yet complimentary backgrounds in fluid mechanics, rapid prototyping, strategy, finance and marketing equip us with the skills necessary for tackling a broad spectrum of problems. We excel in finding innovative engineering solutions to complex challenges – even in the context of financial and infrastructural constraints.

For years, the team has been developing chemical propulsion systems. In total, we have conducted

… more than 100 hot-fire tests of chemical propulsion systems

… using 6 different propellant combinations

… on 5 in-house developed testing platforms.

“Rocket science is hard, but this team is able to do it”
