HelicitySpace develops in-space propulsion and power technology critical to humanity's expansion into the solar system.

Our Technology

The Helicity Drive is a scalable pulsed fusion concept ------ from fusion-augmented electric propulsion to fully ignited reactors ----- based on magnetic reconnection, plasma plectonemes, and peristaltic magnetic compression.
