In the space sector Nablawave helps start-ups to speed up the technology development of their propulsion systems from zero up to TLR 6-7, with a completely different approach compared to the traditional space sector. After several years in the low-cost space sector, we have proved that it is possible to match the demanding space requirements adopting industrial, smart, low-cost solutions. This is the real “innovation key” for New Space companies to become profitable. Being a start-up ourselves is key to maintaining a dynamic structure that can proactively respond to customer needs.
What we offer / Benefits:
We offer technical consultancy on the following important aspects of space propulsion:
1. Reduction in space development costs, often achieved using commercial off the shelf (COTS) components. Small variations on the propulsion system layout can have large impacts on development, safety, operational costs, as well as time to market.
2. Assessment of propulsion concepts in the most efficient way: a perfect mix of design, simulation, and testing, that permits to strongly reduce the development time.
3. Experimental facility design and optimal organisation, increasing the number of tests per day and reducing testing costs. In our experience it is possible to design, build, and organize flexible and fast testing facilities with very low budgets, respecting safety requirements. Our experience is derived from almost 1000 tests that we carried out on different propulsion system configurations using only low-cost industrial equipment.
