AST Advanced Space Technologies GmbH

AST will coordinate the project and will contribute with its expertise in electric propulsion, testing and space system engineering.

Innovative Sensor Technology AG

Innovative Sensor Technology AG will contribute with its sensor know-how. For optimization e.g. the flow laminarity at the sensor element, IST will subcontract an analysis of small gas flows in sub-mm flow channels using a FEM gas dynamic simulation. For such FEM analyses IST usually works close together with the company ELBAU in Berlin.

Staiger GmbH & Co. KG

STA will supply the project with their miniaturized solenoid valve technology and long term experience and heritage in valve development.

RHP-Technology GmbH & Co. KG

RHP will add experience in producing flow boards with sub-mm channel. They further contribute with experience gained in the framework of the Austrian Research Center Seibersdorf.

TRANSMIT Gesellschaft für Technologietransfer mbH

University of Gießen (UGI), represented by TRANSMIT, will make available their test infrastructure and experience from electric propulsion qualification tests. They will provide the opportunity to test the flow control unit together with a state-of-the-art micro thruster. UGI also has experience in setting up a low flow measurement device.
