About Benchmark Space Systems:

Our mission is to improve yours. Founded in 2017 and headed for multiple in-space missions in 2021, Benchmark Space Systems is positioned to be your in-space mobility partner. We are focused on improving accessibility to propulsion capability by providing the most cost-effective propulsion solutions for your Small Satellite mission needs: from simple orbit adjustments and regulatory compliance to high-agility maneuvers and RPO. Benchmark Space’s innovations have been specifically designed to improve safety and capability for spacecraft ranging from 1U through ESPA class. Our short lead times, ease of integration, and unpressurized launch enabled by our patented On-Demand Pressurization System have been important differentiators for our customers. Our team is eager to explore how one of our several best-in-class products may improve your next mission!

 

Integrated Propulsion Systems:

Starling

Starling Propulsion System

Benchmark Space Systems’ Starling system offering was developed to provide the benefits of reliable, high-precision positioning and control capability with unprecedented safety and affordability

This innovative system uses inert, non-toxic powdered fuel that is filled before shipping and remains inert until a pressurization command is triggered on-orbit. The ability to fill, ship, store, and inhibit an assembled & fueled Starling is “a game changer” for lowering launch manifest and operational costs, improving safety and reliability over alternatives, and providing a path to ISS compatibility.

Additive manufacturing on primary components delivers unbeatable lead time, making this the premier propulsion solution for your next CubeSat mission.

Halcyon

Halcyon Propulsion System

Benchmark Space Systems’ Halcyon delivers a non-toxic (‘green’), high thrust propulsion system to the small satellite market. Our innovations address challenges with alternative systems in this class:  lead time, launch safety, and power consumption.

Our proprietary on-demand pressurization technology and non-toxic propellants will ease your launch manifest and expand your on-orbit capabilities.

Halcyon is offered in monopropellant HTP or dual mode HTP + Butane creating the most innovative small satellite solution for your high thrust, or pulse-mode operational needs.

First mission is launching in 2021.

Peregrine 

Peregrine Propulsion System

Benchmark Space Systems’ Peregrine delivers a non-toxic (‘green’), high thrust propulsion system to the small satellite market. Our innovations address challenges with alternative systems in this class:  lead time, launch safety, and power consumption.

Our proprietary on-demand pressurization technology and non-toxic propellants will ease your launch manifest and expand your on-orbit capabilities. Additionally, Benchmark Space’s patent pending micromixing technique eliminates the need for catalyst beds, a high cost, long-lead component used in other chemical propulsion systems.

With in-house components designed for additive manufacturing, Benchmark offers an industry-best performance and value.
