NeutronStar Systems and Krisol signed a cooperation agreement to foster innovative space technology development to address the future of space operations. At a time when the European funding powers appear to be attempting to curb investment in emerging high-power space technologies, this accord comes as a breath of fresh air.

The agreement, in the form of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), formalizes and strengthens the existing relationship between Krisol and NeutronStar Systems (NSS) at the strategic and working level, focusing on promoting the development and manufacturing of advanced Ultra Lightweight Space Solar PhotoVoltaic Array (ULSPVA) technolog,y based on the company’s 35-year R&D legacy ing thin-film deposition. The integration of NSS’ and Krisol’s technology promises to drastically improve the feasibility and economics of future space missions such as GEO communications satellites, satellite servicing space tugs, and cargo missions to the Moon and to Mars.
