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 synchronous spring pusher system which separates satellites smoothly and evenly, without unwanted shocks or tumbling, making it the lowest-shock and lowest-tumbling separation system ever used in space.
