Industry Challenges

As cubesat and smallsat class spacecraft become compelling and beneficial alternatives to larger/traditional/geosynchronous satellites, the financial and operational value of adding propulsion capability continues to increase. Benchmark Space’s integrated systems were designed to be responsive to many previously unsolved challenges our satellite partners and prospective customers are facing: Integration Cost, Safety/Reliability, Launch Operations, and Lead time

Applications

Orbit Insertion
After separation from a launch vehicle or rideshare, the BSS propulsion system can be used to phase a spacecraft and/or adjust the orbit to your mission specific requirements.
 
Controlled Deorbit
At the end of your spacecraft’s mission life, the BSS propulsion system is ideal to safely and efficiently execute a deorbit maneuver, clearing the space for a replacement asset.
Collision Avoidance
Proliferation of space is a growing concern. The BSS propulsion system offers fast, responsive maneuvering in the event that another spacecraft or piece of debris is a probable close approach.
Station Keeping
The BSS propulsion system provides the required directional delta-V to maintain your spacecraft in its desired orbit.
Orbit Transfer

In the event that you need to reposition the spacecraft at some point, the BSS propulsion system can be used to maneuver to the phasing orbit and into the new operational orbit.

Life Extension

A BSS propulsion system can be configured to provide sufficient spacecraft torque to rapidly desaturate reaction wheels at altitudes where other methods are difficult or impossible.

Momentum Management

The BSS propulsion system offers precise maneuvering capabilities to our customers looking to do fine pointing, RPO, and servicing.
