About Aurora Propulsion Technologies:
Aurora Propulsion Technologies is a Finnish company dedicated to creating scalable solutions and services for small spacecraft movement and lifecycle control. The company has an existing array of different propulsion products, including single resistojet thrusters, aurora resistojet modules, aurora plasma brakes and electric solar wind sail technology.
Aurora Propulsion Technologies’ mission is to ensure sustainable use of space, whilst prolonging the useful lifespan of satellites. Our technologies enable effective and prompt implementation of satellite position and orientation to ensure successful execution and growth for the owners’ business as well as the safe and reliable deorbiting of satellites at the end of their useful life. The long-term mission goal is deep space exploration with microsatellite-sized probes using a revolutionary means of propulsion, an electric sail.

About Kayhan Space:
Kayhan Space is on a mission to make spaceflight safer by building next-generation autonomous spaceflight capabilities. Every aspect of modern life – from global supply chains to agriculture, to defense – is dependent on space-based technologies. A catastrophic collision in orbit can disrupt trillion-dollar industries that rely on space to operate. Rapidly increasing congestion in orbit, coupled with the lack of universally agreed-upon “rules of the road” is significantly increasing the risk of such events.
Kayhan is building autonomous tools so operators can coordinate avoidance maneuvers that are safe for all spacecraft and optimized with all operators’ missions in mind, reducing the response time to collision events by more than 95%. With more than 10x growth in the number of satellites in the next decade, the risk of satellites colliding with each other is rapidly increasing. To mitigate the risk of a collision, multiple satellite operators need to coordinate their collision avoidance maneuvers. But the rapid increase in collision risk and increasing frequency of short-notice alerts mean coordination between operators can no longer be done effectively with humans in the loop. We recently announced the launch of Kayhan Pathfinder – a coordinated autonomous satellite collision avoidance system – that optimizes response efforts to potential collision events by eliminating delays and human errors from the critical path of response.
