Sidus Space's LizzieSat to Use Green Chemical Propulsion Technology from Dawn Aerospace

Sidus Space, a Space-as-a-Service company focused on mission-critical hardware manufacturing combined with commercial satellite design, manufacture, launch, and data collection has announced an agreement with Dawn Aerospace to implement its green, chemical propulsion technology into LizzieSat.

Among the novel characteristics of Sidus Space’s proprietary LizzieSat is that its size allows Sidus to include propulsion and provide precision pointing and maneuvering otherwise not available to smaller cubesats. Additionally, propulsion provides a longer life in orbit which means continued data transfer and revenue opportunities. Each LizzieSat is 100 kg with approximately 20 kg dedicated to payloads including remote sensing instruments. The larger mass also allows design for redundancy and reliability in the spacecraft.

Dawn is a space transportation company, specializing in non-toxic chemical satellite propulsion and sustainable space launch. Dawn has provided in-space propulsion products used to propel satellites to customers globally since 2019.

“We are excited to partner with Dawn Aerospace on this important feature for our LizzieSat constellation.  We believe Dawn’s turnkey propulsion technology will allow us to extend our time in orbit and deliver on our future value proposition of providing space-based data to a multitude of industries,” said Carol Craig, Sidus Space Founder, and CEO.

“We look forward to partnering with Sidus Space to enable propulsion for their missions,” said Jeroen Wink, Dawn Co-founder. “Sidus is one of many customers we are providing propulsion to as demand for space products and services continues to grow.”
