Engineering spaceflight systems

Company

ZENNO Astronautics is a spaceflight systems company solving key challenges in the burgeoning commercial space market, while working towards the optimisation of the nanosatellite bus. Our aim is to make space commercially compelling through propulsion systems that extend mission lifespans, and allow maximum time in optimal conditions. We focus on mission planning tools to effectively manage and optimise available resources, all while ensuring space is used responsibly and sustainably.

We have identified growth potential stemming from our hardware and software in numerous applications, and aim to be a key player in propulsion, mission planning, space traffic management, space logistics, and on-orbit servicing.

Products

ZENNO Drive in development

The Drive is a novel propulsion system designed for 3U and 6U CubeSats, which circumvents many of the obstacles current propulsion systems face. It offers decisive mass, size, and power advantages, while delivering compelling performance.

The Drive allows precise control across six degrees of freedom, and has the capability to perform orbit insertion correction, inclination correction, station keeping, formation flying, constellation phasing, collision avoidance, and end-of-life deorbiting.

ZENNO Astrodynamics Toolkit in development

The Astrodynamics Toolkit is a highly accurate satellite trajectory simulation tool. It utilises big data and machine learning to deliver accuracy and performance advantages over existing solutions.

The Astrodynamics Toolkit allows orbit lifetime estimation for mandatory satellite licensing, mission planning for effective resource use, and space traffic management capabilities, which is crucial for the sustainable use of space.
