Neutron Star Systems (NSS) is a space start-up revolutionising near-Earth operations, in-space logistics and deep space missions. We are a market enabler for high power missions focused on delivering disruptive and innovative electric propulsion systems incorporating the latest high temperature superconductor technology (HTS).
The minds of a few bold entrepreneurs, led by Manuel La Rosa take the hand of academia to push the engineering model outside of the lab, and get it in front of satellites and spacecraft manufacturers.
NSS’s electric propulsion systems are propellant-agnostic, manoeuvrable and scalable, allowing for multi-orbit, multi-mode, multi-domain spacecraft architectures.
The EU awards EUR 3.5 million to the MEESST project to develop a superconducting spacecraft re-entry system. NSS founders are awarded a founder scholarship worth EUR 24,000.
NSS is accepted into the prestigious Catalyst Accelerator organised by the US Space Force and Air Force Research Laboratory. NSS secures EUR 200,000 convertible loan financing from the NRW Bank in Germany.
The growth of the company continues through multiple conferences, events, meetings, grants, and awards that eventually lead to signing promising contracts.
Turned towards the full development, and commercialisation of the SUPREME propulsion systems, NSS embarks on larger grants schemes from key partners.
