Description

The Palomar Propulsion System is a fully integrated CubeSat micro propulsion system that includes a propellant tank, plenum and eight thrusters. The Palomar MiPS is designed to occupy the center of a 3U CubeSat. This smart system is designed to interface with the spacecraft through an I2C data bus for command and control.

The Palomar MiPS is primarily a reaction control system with thrusters arranged so that use of all six degrees of freedom (DoF) in rotation and translation are possible. Additional propellant is available by stretching the tank lobes, allowing for a custom propulsion system mass and volume based on specific mission needs.
