The 34th Annual Small Satellite Conference will explore the realm of possible space mission architectures and how they can be practically achieved to support the diverse needs of the global space community.
SmallSat Conference 2020 will be held in a virtual format with no on-site presence this year because of COVID-19. With nearly two decades of support of the SmallSat Conference, VACCO Industries is pleased to participate in the 2020 conference. Join us at our virtual booth and live chat with our team.
VACCO Congratulates NASA / JPL with the success of MarCO & InSight mission! VACCO is proud to have provided both MarCO CubeSat propulsion systems and also the propulsion hardware to InSight spacecraft for NASA / JPL.
VACCO Industries was a sponsor of the 2017 International Electric Propulsion Conference (IEPC) which was held from October 8 through October 12 at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Our team had the pleasure of meeting and discussing innovations in electric propulsion with professors, NASA scientists and engineers at private companies.
VACCO Chief Engineer Joe Cardin presented a paper on the design of a CubeSat High Impulse Propulsion System at the December 2016 JANNAF conference. The CubeSat High Impulse Propulsion System (CHIPS) is currently under development by CU Aerospace in partnership with VACCO Industries. It is intended for use in CubeSat and micro-satellite platforms expected to execute missions involving more than basic orbit maintenance i.e., substantial altitude changes, formation flying and proximity operations such as rendezvous and docking.
VACCO engineers attended the 2017 CubeSat Developers Workshop which was held at the Cal Poly Performing Arts Center in San Luis Obispo from April 26 through April 28. The 14th annual conference was attended by participants from all across the world who discussed innovations in space and CubeSat technology.
On March 23, 2017, we were honored to host Annette Hasbrook, NASA Associate Program Manager of Orion and Larry Price, Deputy Program Manager for Orion at Lockheed Martin. They gave VACCO employees an overview of the NASA Orion Program and discussed the future of NASA Manned Space Flight.
VACCO provided valves and filters for the all-electric propulsion system in the Boeing satellite ABS-2A which provides direct-to-home television services to customers in several regions including Africa, the Middle East, North Africa, Russia and parts of Asia.
Hydrazine and its derivatives have been the traditional propellants for spacecraft since the 1960s. It is a conventional rocket fuel. Hydrazine is a hypergolic propellant. As such, it can ignite on contact with an oxidizer and does not require an independent ignition source. This attribute makes hydrazine a particularly well suited monopropellant for spacecraft maneuvering systems that require frequent restarting capability.
Our CubeSat propulsion system engineers attended the Small Satellite Conference that was held from August 8 to 13 at Utah State University. The conference is an internationally recognized annual gathering for the small satellite community to review achievements and explore opportunities in small spacecraft development. The conference draws prominent speakers from the armed forces, academia and the sciences. This year’s conference brought more than: 2000 participants, 200 students and 600 organizations. There were 141 commercial exhibits and 122 oral presentations. The presentations covered many technological areas related to small satellites including communication, launch, ground systems and propulsion. Continue reading “Small Satellite Conference 2016” »
