Benchmark Space Systems to offer propulsion systems in the Orbital Transports space catalog
Benchmark Space Systems announced that its DFAST and B125 small satellite propulsion systems would be available through the Orbital Transports Space Catalog. These innovative propulsion systems have been specifically designed to improve safety and capability for spacecraft ranging from 3U through ESPA class. Both product lines use green propellants and launch unpressurized thanks to a patented On-Demand Pressurization System and micromixing techniques.
“Benchmark Systems is delivering our first commercial and government systems in 2020,” said Ryan McDevitt, CEO at Benchmark. “We’re anticipating that offering our products through the Space Catalog will allow us to tap into a wider market and reach more customers who need a cost-effective propulsion solution for their satellite needs.” Benchmark will demonstrate its DFAST technology on orbit with the BSS1 satellite mission, currently manifested on a Summer 2020 launch. Leading up to the launch, the company is offering promotional pricing and a free Flatsat Integration Evaluation Kit (IEK) to customer that pre-order a DFAST for their next mission.
“Benchmark’s green propellant and on-demand pressurization systems really simplify regulatory compliance and range safety requirements for nanosatellite missions,” stated David Hurst, CEO of Orbital Transports. “We look forward to using DFAST and B125 for customer missions. We’re incredibly happy to offer these products in the Space Catalog.” The Space Catalog, a digital portal hosted by Orbital Transports, provides a convenient resource to check out the small satellite industry’s latest and greatest products and services. With the complete smallsat supply chain in one place, the Space Catalog solves the logistics for your nanosatellite and smallsat missions.
