Air Liquide has developed a fully automated Xenon loading cart
For xenon filling and emptying operations, as well as pressure tests on ionic propulsion systems, Air Liquide has developed a fully automated Xenon loading cart. Ionic propulsion is now an ultra-efficient technology for controlling satellites in orbit. The thrusters are powered by high-pressure Xenon, whose exceptional properties make it possible to reduce the satellite's mass and extend its life by several years.
