ExoTerra Wins Commercial Contract

ExoTerra has been contracted to develop a complete propulsion system for a commercial satellite scheduled for flight in mid-2021. This project is expected to provide ExoTerra with the first flight opportunity for our Halo and Courier propulsion system elements, demonstrating on-orbit operation and performance. This propulsion system consists of our Halo Hall-effect thruster and Courier propellant distribution system, with expanded xenon propellant storage capacity for increased total impulse. The system is powered and controlled by our Courier power processing electronics.
