providing energy to the satellite when it is in Earth's shadow
Current space battery systems are nearly twice as heavy as automotive batteries with the same energy capacity.
Established space batteries are magnitudes more expensive than automotive batteries.
Traditional space development programs take many years, leading to outdated tech in space.
In the last 15 years, automotive battery technology has advanced rapidly and is now significantly more performant than established space battery technology.
Qualifying higher automotive performance for space applications
Automotive technology has significantly better performance and lower prices. We qualify it for space by using comprehensive aerospace certification experience.
Our modular & chemistry-independant battery system technology builds upon the industry-standard 21700 cylindrical cell format, enabling fast upgrades to even better future battery cell chemistries.
Cell selection, battery system development (mechanical, electral, thermal), production and testing all in-house. Optimized to keep and extend our competitive advantage.
In lower earth orbit (LEO), a satellite circles earth approx. 16 times per day
- that corresponds to 30,000 battery cycles in 5 years.
Our first product family based on our proprietary qualification and design technology.
