World leading propulsion system

Tech & Sec Weekly


Neumann Space has entered into an agreement to deliver what it says is a world leading propulsion system, the Neumann Drive, to Colorado-based CisLunar Industries, a designer and manufacturer of Modular Space Foundries, to help progress a U.S. Space Force-funded project that will create a circular propulsion ecosystem, the companies announced today.

The USD $1.7 million project led by CisLunar Industries and including industry partners such as Astroscale U.S. and Colorado State University, is focused on operationalising the recycling of metal in space to create metallic fuel for propulsion that will enable enhanced and sustainable satellite mobility.

The Neumann Drive was selected for integration into this project due its unique propulsion technology that uses solid metallic propellant. Neumann Space has previously conducted a series of tests demonstrating that its patented pulsed cathodic arc thruster technology can use in-space recycled metal as fuel.

We speak with Neumann Space’s CEO, Herve Astier.
