Princeton Satellite Systems, Inc. is an aerospace research and development company. We are developing fusion microreactors for space and terrestrial power. These reactors, based on the Princeton Field-Reversed Configuration (PFRC) developed by the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, have the potential to revolutionize space travel and provide portable and modular fusion power plants. Read about our latest progress in the PFRC experiment and fusion rocket development on our blog, and our recently closed crowdfundraising on SpacedVentures!
In addition to fusion rockets, we design cutting-edge guidance, navigation, and control systems for spacecraft, and we sell commercial software and hardware to help our customers do the same.
Our core values include a dedication to learning and an emphasis on innovation. We believe that each employee can grow intellectually, learn new disciplines, and contribute original ideas to our business areas.
