Meet the Orbion Team
Orbion’s engineers have built 100s of space hardware components that are flying all over the solar system.Orbion’s expertise
Your small-satellite constellation has an important mission. Let Orbion’s Aurora propulsion system add value to your architecture:
Increase image quality by operating at lower orbit altitudes; improve GSD and NIIRS ratings to stay ahead of the competition. Better signal-to-noise for SAR missions.
Dramatically decrease launch costs by reducing propellant mass needed for on-orbit maneuvers.
Extend satellite lifetime by using efficient drag compensation and reducing required replacement launches.
Hitch a low-cost ride to space, then use on-board propulsion to deliver your satellite to destination orbit.
Our propulsion system at-a-glance
The Orbion Aurora is a fully integrated Hall-effect propulsion system, including thruster, power processing unit, propellant management assembly, and electrical harnessing. The system is designed from the ground-up to be an affordable, reliable, mass-producible product. Aurora is a workhorse you can trust for your in-space maneuvers.
Our automated assembly and acceptance testing ensures the highest quality control—whether your application requires 1 or 1,000 units.
