Dawn Aerospace awarded €1.4M by EU Commission for hydrazine-replacement programme

Dawn Aerospace has been awarded €1.4 million from the European Commission to help develop its transformative ‘green’, in-space propulsion technology. The grant will contribute to Dawn’s continued investment in hydrazine-replacement technology. The propulsion technology will have the size and performance of a hydrazine-based system, but without the toxicity, supply chain or regulatory risk. There is currently no other option on the market that is gaining commercial traction to replace hydrazine, which in 2011, was classified by the European Commission as a substance of very high concern.
