Pictorial description of monopropellant and bipropellant chemical propulsion systems for satellites and spacecraft.





For over 50 years, we have been supplying monopropellant and bipropellant propulsion systems for a diverse range of international satellites and spacecraft. The bipropellant propulsion systems are mainly used for medium to heavy spacecraft, whereas the monopropellant hydrazine propulsion systems are used for small to medium spacecraft for LEO and MEO missions.


All of our propulsion systems are available with total ground support - every step of the way, from delivery, integration and test, through to launch campaign support, propellant loading and post launch operations.
