Halcyon

Overview

The most versatile system in our integrated products line-up combines an HTP thruster developed by legacy Tesseract with Benchmark’s fluid handling and flight controller subsystems in a turn-key system offering. The Halcyon takes advantage of readily available catalyst materials in its monopropellant configuration resulting in a reliable non-toxic chemical-class solution with moderate specific impulse and excellent pulse-mode performance for precision operations. For more demanding missions with large movements and demanding mobility requirements, the Halcyon is available in a ‘dual mode’ configuration, which takes advantage of post-catalyzed gas-gas injection that can double the specific impulse of the unit. This system is suitable for most smallsat missions, enabling the widest range of on-orbit mobility operations of any small satellite propulsion solution on the market. The Halcyon is scheduled to make it’s on-orbit debut in H1 2021.
