SUPERSiC® silicon carbide telescopes, mirrors, and structures for earth observation, star tracking, laser communication, and surveillance applications. Entegris’s chemical vapor conversion (CVC) process for making SUPERSiC silicon carbide allows for highly-optimized and ultra-lightweight assemblies for space flight. The CVC process is also very low cost because large-volume machining is performed on the soft carbon material before gaseous conversion changes it to hard silicon carbide. After conversion, precision machining on critical surfaces ONLY helps to keep costs to a minimum and reduce lead times. Complex, highly optimized design, lightweight, low cost, shorter lead times are all characteristics of POCO’s unique method for making silicon carbide. These crucial advantages complement very well Entegris/Poco Materials long history of making for-flight hardware.

Constellations of satellites are needed for applications such as remote sensing, internet from space or weather observation. However, these constellations require satellites to be deployed to multiple specific orbits. Currently, it is too expensive to use even low-cost reusable rockets to deliver satellites to every orbit.
To solve this problem, Momentus is providing shuttle and hosted payload services for satellites. Large rockets deliver our shuttles loaded with satellites into an initial orbit. Our shuttles then transport these satellites the last mile to their target orbits. Our satellite shuttles are powered by water plasma engines and make deployment of satellites at least two to three times cheaper.
