OUR MISSION

INNOVATING SPACE WITH STEAM

SteamJet is developing a safe compact incombustible thruster for orbit control of CubeSat satellites. Our efforts are focused to enable critical small satellite functions, to optimize their hardware, launch and operation costs.

SteamJet is constantly exploring new possibilities to provide more advanced solutions and services. We value innovative efforts, ideas, and methods to better understand customers’ processes, identify their needs and offer solutions to optimize their earnings within the shortest possible time frame.

THE PROBLEM

PROPULSION FOR CUBESATS?

● CubeSats are launched as secondary payloads, without the possibility to optimize their final orbit

● Mission capabilities are limited by the absence of a propulsion system (no orbital manoeuvres)

● CubeSats deployed from the ISS (International Space Station) re-enter Earth’s atmosphere in 1-2 years

● CubeSats deployed at high altitude orbits (> 600-700 Km) violate the 25 years re-entry international guideline

No hazardous propellant (toxic or flammable)

No pressurized systems

Low power consumption

Small volume and mass (typically < 1U)

THE SOLUTION

RAPID HEATING OF WATER

● Non-toxic, non-flammable, non-corrosive

● Low molar-mass, high density

● Largely available in space – re-fuelling options from asteroid mining

Safe

Respects all CubeSat safety requirements

Simple

The solid thruster design and efficient mass exhaustion increases reliability and decreases costs

Small

The propulsion system is smaller than 1U and exploits the “tuna can” volume available on CubeSat deployers

THE SYSTEM

FLEXIBLE SYSTEM FOR SATELLITE PROPULSION

● Compact option – minimum overall dimentions

● Flexible option – maximum flexibility

Parameter Target Value
Validated with preliminary test results
