Mars Solar Hawk
Mars Solar Hawk is our 3U CubeSat that serves as an experimental mission platform for testing the combination of Solar Sailing and hall-effect ion propulsion technologies for transfer to Mars in 60 days. It uses solar sail and ion propulsion technology to demonstrate the viability of propellantless acceleration and deceleration for future faster deep space exploration missions. Our Mars Solar Hawk mission is an important step towards advancing our capabilities in deep space exploration and propulsion, as it aims to evaluate the performance and reliability of hybrid ion-powered and solar sailing systems. The results of this experiment will inform the development of more advanced spacecraft designs and pave the way for future deep space missions.
