Rubicon Space Systems is a committed champion and partner in creating a more verdant space economy. We are a developer and provider of in-space propulsion systems and thrusters that use the low-toxicity “green” and safe Advanced Space Craft Energetic Non-Toxic propellant (ASCENT), also known as AF-M315E. It is no longer a choice between “going green” or high performance. Our thruster technology offers both.
Rubicon Space Systems has more than 30 years of combined experience in developing green propulsion technologies and thousands of hours of thruster testing experience. Our team leads the world in the development and infusion of ASCENT-based propulsion, and we are ready to support your spacecraft mobility needs.
Rubicon Space Systems has developed a line of ASCENT thrusters for small spacecraft. Our 0.1N thruster is flying on NASA’s Lunar Flashlight Propulsion System.
Our self-contained modules are designed to operate in single or multi-module mode to add propulsive capability to a spacecraft. The Sprite Propulsion System is a plug-and-play system ideal for delta-V, momentum management, collision-avoidance, and de-orbiting a cubesat or smallsat.
