WE are putting antimatter to work, developing the spacecraft engine for the 21st century.
THE NEED TO EXPLORE HAS ALWAYS BEEN IN OUR DNA. WE HAVE SAILED THE OCEANS AND VENTURED INTO SPACE TO VISIT OUR PLANETARY NEIGHBORS.
With current propulsion technology it takes decades for our fastest spacecraft to reach the edge of our Solar System and thousands of years to reach our closest neighboring Star; far too long. We need rocket engines that are 1,000 times faster.
positron dynamics is building that rocket.
WHAT WE DO
WHAT WE DO
ANTIMATTER IS THE MOST ENERGY DENSE MATERIAL IN THE UNIVERSE. POSITRON DYNAMICS IS HARNESSING THIS POWER BY CREATING A ROCKET ENGINE BASED ON POSITRONS, THE ANTI-ELECTRON PARTICLE.
Our core innovation is the ability to generate intense beams of cold positrons using proprietary array moderators combined with compact radioisotope sources of positrons.
This allows for a rocket engine 1,000x more efficient than current state of the art ion/plasma thrusters.
this revolutionary capability will transform how satellites and satellite constellations operate in Low-Earth-Orbit (LEO), Geo-stationary orbit (GEO) and beyond. Lower launch costs (less fuel required), added maneuverability and longer satellite lifetimes are incredibly important for satellites with applications from Earth imaging to global broadband internet service.
