The European Space Agency has awarded Dawn Aerospace €200k GSTP funding to increase the performance of its green bi-propellant thrusters for satellites. Dawn has received over €10 million in orders for satellite propulsion systems in the last 12 months, specifically the B20 and B1 green propellant thrusters and associated turn key systems. Thirty-three of these […]
Dawn Aerospace has been awarded €1.4 million from the European Commission to help develop its transformative ‘green’, in-space propulsion technology. The grant will contribute to Dawn’s continued investment in hydrazine-replacement technology. The propulsion technology will have the size and performance of a hydrazine-based system, but without the toxicity, supply chain or regulatory risk. There is […]
Dawn Aerospace has been selected by Blue Canyon Technologies to provide turnkey chemical propulsion systems for the X-SAT Saturn satellite bus. Dawn will supply thrusters, tanks, control electronics, and full-service support in logistics and propellant loading for the ESPA Grande-class satellite. Blue Canyon Technologies LLC (BCT), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Raytheon Technologies, recently celebrated its […]
Orbit Fab, the Gas Stations in Space™ company, and Dawn Aerospace, a space-transportation company, today announced a collaboration to make on-orbit refueling available to satellites utilizing nitrous oxide and propylene (N2O and C3H6).
New Zealand-Dutch space transportation company, Dawn Aerospace, has completed five test flights of its uncrewed Mk-II Aurora suborbital spaceplane, with the prototype airframe equipped with surrogate jet engines.
While the rocket launch sector is quickly becoming crowded, the same can’t be said for companies developing suborbital spaceplanes. This means there’s plenty of room to grow for startups like Dawn Aerospace, which has now completed five test flights of its Mk-II Aurora spaceplane that is designed to fly up to 60 miles above the Earth’s surface.
