Pulsar is a clean space propulsion systems and services company delivering intelligent propulsion now and creating the future through fusion applications. Delivering rocket and electric propulsion today and the prospect of fusion propulsion tomorrow.
The future of fusion propulsion
2027 Orbital Demonstration
Pulsar has now proceeded to phase 3, the manufacture of the initial test unit of the DFD engine. Static tests are to begin in 2023 followed by an In Orbit Demonstration (IOD) of the technology in 2027.
Designed to produce both thrust and electric power for interplanetary spacecraft, designers think that this technology can radically expand the science capability of planetary missions.
Plasma thrusters can extend the orbital lifetime of each satellite and are ideal for applications in small spacecraft for attitude control, precision spacecraft control, and low-thrust manoeuvres.
LOW EARTH ORBIT
Hybrid rockets avoid some of the disadvantages of solid rockets like the dangers of propellant handling, while also avoiding some disadvantages of liquid rockets like their mechanical complexity.

Nuclear Fusion Global Assets as of 2023
More has been invested in nuclear fusion in the past 12 months than in the prior decade, raising hopes of a breakthrough in clean energy technology and a huge $2.8bn has been poured into the sector globally during this period.
To Attain 15x Net Fusion Energy Gain
The 24-year-old fusion record was recently broken – generating the highest sustained fusion energy pulse ever; demonstrating fusion of hydrogen and boron-11 using high-power lasers- produced 10x more fusion than expected.
In-space propulsion market size
The advent of the 21st century has changed the market dynamics of the global space industry and the global space propulsion market growth due to the commercialisation of the global space industry and new market players entering the space industry.
