Aerojet Rocketdyne, an L3Harris Technologies company, is the world leader in the development, qualification and flight of electric propulsion systems that enable civil, defense and commercial missions for various customers. We have delivered more than 600 electric propulsion thrusters that have flown on over 250 satellites to date.
Benefits of SEP
- Lower launch mass from carrying less propellant enables reduced launch cost
- Reduced propellant mass enables additional payload capacity
- Extended satellite maneuvering and mission lifetimes with the same quantity of propellant
Enabling Deep Space Human Missions
In addition to satellite operations, SEP systems are key to enabling future crewed deep space missions. Aerojet Rocketdyne is developing advanced electric propulsion systems that will enable humans to go back to the Moon and on to Mars. SEP will play a critical role in the efficient transfer of cargo and payloads to deep space ahead of crew arrival.
