How can we create cheaper, cleaner, smaller propulsion systems for the thousands of nanosats cruising over our head? The answer is simple: electricity!
Constellations of nanosats are currently cruising above our heads. Those small devices needs propulsion to navigate and fulfill their missions. Yet thrusters are often heavy, toxic and are relying too much on fuel. Accion Systems built the next-generation ion thruster and it's as tiny as the nanosats themselves!
Louis Perna is the Chief Scientist of Accion Systems.
Hello Tomorrow is a global organisation dedicated to leveraging deep technologies to help solve world challenges. Through our Global startup Challenge, which has had 18,000 applications from over 100 countries since 2014, we identify deeptech solutions by partnering with universities and research labs. We empower the pioneers who drive these solutions and connect them with industry leaders, investors, researchers and regulators through conferences and networking events in 11 countries. In addition to facilitating a global deeptech ecosystem, we offer consulting services to help companies integrate deep tech into their strategies, enable their organisation to adapt to faster and more open innovation, and train them to be more agile.
