WJETech Spa (we push from the inside)
Wjetech Spa is a technological aerospace startup founded October 2019 initially funded by Corfo (Chilean economic development agency) and micro investors.
We were awarded startup funds for our proposal (demonstrated) of a revolutionary method of space propulsion that does not require fuel (propellantless propulsion) permitting the constant acceleration of spacecraft, best for traveling large distances (the limits of our solar system) and extend the useful life of satellites and probes.
Immediate applications (first clients)
The global space economy will continued to grow well beyond $423.8 billion, according to a report by the Space Foundation.
One of its fastest growing segments is the use of cubesats, nanosatellites that as the cost of their components fall they are projected to have exponential growth in the coming decades.
Most of these cubsats do not have thrusters, those that do are too small to contain sufficient propellant to permit orbital plane change maneuvers.
As cubsats cannot change their orbits there are a growing number of companies that intend to use autonomous space tugs that latch to a cubstat (or other type of spacecraft that has been crippled by lack of fuel or other reason) and move it to its new orbit.
Among the companies that are exploring the space tug segment are Momentus, Skyrora, Airbus, SpaceLogistics (Northrop Grumman), Astroscale, Clearspace and others that are competing to excel in this lucrative market.
All these companies will find our technology an enormous competitive advantage when our thrusters are incorporated to their products.
A new space industrial revolution is underway, the opportunity for growth for space industry is literally infinite and we will be a part of that revolution.
We offer our products to the aerospace industries that are fulfilling the needs of building and maintaining humanity’s space infrastructure and eventually aid in the exploration and exploitation of deep space.
