In-space propellant resupply is a critical enabling technology for sustainable space exploration. Eta Space is developing propellant depots for orbital and lunar polar locations, with sizing for a variety of mission architectures. From Aerogel to Zero Boil Off, we develop and deploy advanced cryogenic systems critical to the future of space.
When every milliwatt is precious, Eta Space is ready to optimize your systems for maximum efficiency. Our engineers are experts in both active and passive thermal management for applications of minimizing heat leak and managing heat flow.
Integrated Refrigeration and Storage of cryogenic propellants eliminates storage and transfer losses and enables complete control of the fluid state anywhere on the saturation curve. Eta Space engineers pioneered the IRAS technology, now being added to the worlds largest LH2 storage tank at KSC LC-39B.
LOXSAT is a technology demonstration for a host of cryogenic fluid management technologies in space. Upon proving these technologies, LOXSAT will make way for Cryo-Dock™, a fully commercial cryogenic propellant depot in space.
LOXSAT will launch in Spring of 2024 on a Rocket Lab Electron. Follow us for more updates!
Introducing the world's first cryogenic propellant depot in orbit! Cryo-Dock™ is the first step in enabling sustainable space exploration by servicing spacecraft stages and orbital transfer vehicles with high-energy cryogenic propellants through a standardized, automatic umbilical.
