Accion Systems and York Space Systems to Develop Standardized Propulsion System for York Spacecraft Platform

Accion Systems and York Space Systems announced that they have signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate on a standardized propulsion system for future use with York Space Systems’ spacecraft platform. As part of the intended partnership, Accion Systems will become a preferred provider of standardized propulsion systems, providing York’s customers with ion engine systems for their spacecraft missions. Accion Systems has developed a unique in-space propulsion system, based on a quarter-sized thruster chip, that is scalable from nanosatellites to larger satellites. These engines help satellites perform mission-critical orbital maneuvers. Unlike other ion engines, Accion’s thrust-producing ions are supplied from ionic liquid propellant — a safe, non-toxic liquid salt. This novel source of ions allows Accion to avoid the use of large ionization chambers, pressurized tanks, bulky valves, and external cathodes, significantly reducing its propulsion systems’ size without sacrificing performance, power or reliability.
