Our Mission

Viridian’s Air-Scooping Electric Thruster technology – ASET – enables a refuelable satellite platform that flies at Very Low Earth Orbit (VLEO) and transforms the upper atmosphere into an infinite source of propellant. This technology will truly revolutionize satellite lifecycles and capabilities. VLEO satellites will ensure better satellite Broadband Communications, and superior Earth Observation, and also greatly enhance the burgeoning In-orbit Servicing, Assembly, and Manufacturing (ISAM) industry. ASET technology is a giant leap forward, to a more sustainable and safer space ecosystem.

– Capabilities enabled by ASET –

Access to very-low orbits greatly enhances these Earth-focused capabilities
since sensors and optics are far closer to Earth in a sustainable orbit.

Superior Earth Observation (EO)

  • Higher resolution optical sensing
  • Order of magnitude better active sensing

Higher Broadband Satellite Communications

  • Much higher bandwidth
  • Stronger signal for resiliency to jamming
  • Direct-to-cellphone service

An Infinite Supply of Propellant (Fuel) Also Enables

  • Reusable satellite platforms to support In-space Servicing, Assembly, and Manufacturing (ISAM)
  • Repeatable missions for active space-debris removal
  • The ability to enter LEO and refuel other spacecraft

We are focused on changing and greatly improving the way humanity operates in space!
