CarboNIX

Microsatellite Separation System

CarboNIX is a separation system for small satellites weighing up to 200 kg. CarboNIX uses shock-free technology to reduce the risk of damaging sensitive satellites optical payloads and electronic components. In addition, CarboNIX uses a unique spring pusher system which separates the satellite before the shocks are generated, making it the lowest-shock separation system ever used in space.
