Neumann Drive

The new standard for
in-space electric propulsion

Boosting spacecraft mobility around the earth and beyond.

This is a critical capability for space missions in what is quickly becoming a highly strategic and contested environment.

Mission life cycle value chart

Operations icon

Operations

Operations

No warmup-period required, enabling manoeuvre on demand, and the quasineutral exhaust removes need for neutraliser cathode ignition.

Mission extension icon

Mission Extension

Mission Extension

Solid propellants are easily storable on-orbit to enable mission extension of larger systems by refuelling, or through propelling mission extension vehicles.

De-orbiting icon

De-Orbiting

De-Orbiting

Durable fuel-efficient systems enable survival to end of life for safe disposal via de-orbiting, accelerating removal of liability from your asset register.

Regulatory and logistics icon

Regulatory & Logistics

Regulatory & Logistics

No hazardous materials or pressurised tanks simplifies transport, storage, and launch safety clearance.

Pre-launch icon

Pre-launch

Pre-launch

Inert, solid propellant is pre-loaded during unit integration, removing risks and costs associated with propellant loading before launch.

Launch icon

Launch

Launch

Safe, inert, solid propellant reduces risk during launch, as there are no tanks or joints that can fail.

Design icon

Design

Design

Combining simple interfaces and safe solid propellant makes our system easy to integrate, lowering spacecraft design costs.

Tests & Integration

Tests & Integration

Solid state design with no fluidics leads to simple and safe unit testing and integration campaigns.

Mission Capability

Metallic plasma propulsion for your mission

Neumann Space optimises critical mission capability by offering an efficient and scalable in-space electric propulsion system for satellites and spacecraft.

Due to the unique nature of our propellant, our system will enable refuelling through in-situ resource utilisation (ISRU) of space debris.

Beside standard propulsion functionality, the Neumann Space’s propulsion system is helping to close the loop on the business case for lifetime extension and OSAM missions by creating thruster propellant in orbit far from terrestrial resupply through ISRU.

Our missions

Why choose Neumann Space?

Neumann Space creates value at every stage of the mission, from design, manufacturing, integration and ground logistics to launch and operations in space.
