About Manastu Space Technologies
We believe that due to limited resources on the planet, there is a need to look out for an alternative to solve our problems and that another side is the space. This option is viable only if we have low cost and sustainable access to space. Manastu Space is working with the exact vision of reducing the cost of access to space. At Manastu Space Technologies we are working on the concept of monopropellant thruster based on hydrogen peroxide: 30% higher specific impulse and 40 times less toxic (non-carcinogenic) as compared to regular hydrazine-based mono-propellant thrusters, which can hence be a potential green alternative to the current monopropellant propulsion technology. The key areas in which we are currently working on the development of a high-temperature catalyst bed that goes into the combustion chamber and facilitates combustion. The catalyst development entails the development of high-temperature ceramics, coating of ceramic with active metal nanoparticles.
About the internship
One key component of any propulsion system is the propellant which burns into the combustion chamber and produces thrust. The propellant for a satellite is qualified for storage for the entire life term of the satellite. These qualifications involve testing the stability of the propellant across various temperature and pressure variations with different storage materials.

Selected intern's day-to-day responsibilities include:

1. Plan and execute several propellant stability experiments based on literature
2. Design, manufacture, and handle procurement of experiment setups for chemistry experiments related to propellant and catalyst
3. Test different chemical formulation using tests like UV spectroscopy, gas and liquid chromatography, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), dynamic light scattering, and ICP- AES

Save yourself from fraud!

If an employer asks you to pay any security deposit, registration fee, laptop fee, etc., do not pay and notify us immediately. Remember, Internshala doesn't charge a fee from the students to apply to an internship & we don't allow other companies to do so either.
