Accion Systems – A New Ion Engine for Small Satellites

Accion Systems Inc.

Accion Systems is pioneering scalable electric propulsion technology that will completely transform what spacecraft can do in and beyond Earth's orbit. We removed the heavy tanks, pumps, valves, toxic propellants, external cathodes and ionization chambers found in conventional electric propulsion systems and created a new ion engine: one that's lighter, more efficient, more powerful — and manufactured hundreds of units at a time. The key to our industry-changing technology lies in its unmatched power-to-weight potential, which allows for scaling our propulsion systems to any satellite platform without sacrificing performance or reliability.
