NanoAvionics has been awarded a grant by the Public Institution Lithuanian Business Support Agency (LBSA) to perform R&D activities on technologies of chemical propulsion systems for small satellite applications and for expansion of the company‘s R&D infrastructure.
The first part of the project is devoted to scientific R&D activities, starting with an in-orbit test campaign of the current NanoAvionics-developed chemical propulsion system prototype during the LituanicaSAT-2 satellite mission. In parallel, a laboratory test campaign with the same design of system prototype is planned to be performed. Data collected from both test campaigns will be analyzed. As a result, a further product development plan of the system will be prepared including designing, prototyping and testing.
