Past Projects


SSDS has worked on a lot of different projects, spanning the spectrum from theoretical to higher TRL experiments. Since we can’t work on everything at once, here is a list of projects currently on hiatus.

Flux Pinning

Flux-Pinned Spacecraft

Magnets and superconductors connect modular spacecraft without physical contact.

CMG Robotics

Space robotic systems use control-moment gyroscopes as low-power, high-torque actuators.

Lorentz-Augmented Orbits

Charged spacecraft achieve non-Keplerian orbits when they pass through magnetic fields.
