Manastu Space is a spacetech startup.
Basic Information
Founded by Tushar Jadhav and Ashtesh Kumar, Manastu Space has developed a green satellite propulsion system. It has also created a safe satellite propulsion fuel, which is less toxic, compared to existing chemical-based satellite propulsion fuels. Manastu’s propulsion systems uses less indigenous toxic fuel, and can provide an impulse for 275 seconds, making it 25 percent more productive as it consumes 25 percent less fuel, and promises a life span of five years for the satellites in orbit. At present, the prototype is under testing at its laboratory in Mumbai and at the Shell Oil and Gas campus at Bengaluru. Further, the propulsion provided by Manastu Space is 60 percent cheaper compared to its competitors in the market. This is because since the fuel is 40 times less toxic than hydrazine, the kind currently used by companies, it results in lesser money spent to ensure safety and handling. Manastu Space’s focus is on low-earth orbit satellites, which are the major consumers of the chemical-based propulsion system.
