Cannae is deploying a cubesat thruster

 

Cannae is forming a new company to commercialize Cannae thruster technology for use on small satellites.  Theseus Space Inc.  will use Cannae thruster technology to maintain (for a minimum of 6 months) the orbit of a 6U cubesat flying below a 150 mile orbital  altitude.  Theseus will launch the satellite within 24 months and will use an existing satellite integrator for the build and launch of the cubesat.  LAI International remains a key partner in Cannae thruster development and project management.  More news to follow.
