Sidus Space Engages Dawn Aerospace to Implement Propulsion Technology into LizzieSatTM

Sidus Space announced an agreement with Dawn Aerospace to implement its green, chemical propulsion technology into LizzieSat™.

Among the novel characteristics of Sidus Space’s proprietary LizzieSat™ is that its size allows Sidus to include propulsion and provide precision pointing and maneuvering otherwise not available to smaller cubesats.  Additionally, propulsion provides a longer life on orbit which means continued data transfer and revenue opportunity.   Each LizzieSat™ is 100kg with approximately 20kg dedicated to payloads including remote sensing instruments. The larger mass also allows design for redundancy and reliability into the spacecraft.

Dawn is a space transportation company, specializing in non-toxic chemical satellite propulsion and sustainable space launch. Dawn has provided in-space propulsion products – used to propel satellites – to customers globally since 2019.

We are excited to partner with Dawn Aerospace on this important feature for our LizzieSat™ constellation.  We believe Dawn’s turnkey propulsion technology will allow us to extend our time in orbit and deliver on our future value proposition of providing space-based data to a multitude of industries,” said Carol Craig, Sidus Space Founder and CEO.

We look forward to partnering with Sidus Space to enable propulsion for their missions,” said Jeroen Wink, Dawn Co-founder. “Sidus is one of many customers we are providing propulsion to as demand for space products and services continues to grow.
