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 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 are 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
Selected Intern's Day-To-Day Responsibilities Include:

1. Handling propellant according to international standards
2. Planning and executing several propellant storability', propellant purification', and hazard classification' experiments based on literature
3. Understanding the decomposition mechanism of the propellant while in storage condition
4. Designing, manufacturing, and handling the procurement of setups for experiments related to propellant storability' and hazard classification'
5. Testing different propellant formulations using methods such as titration, UV spectroscopy, GC, HPLC, Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) with liquid cell/ATR configuration, and elemental analysis like ICP-AES, MP-AES, etc.
Who can apply

Only those candidates can apply who:

1. are available for full time (in-office) internship

Additional Information

Job offer: On successful conversion to a permanent employee, the candidate can expect a salary of Rs. 300000 to 500000 /year

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.

At Manastu Space, we are currently looking for a Propellant Development Intern to be the supportive force that empowers our strong technical know-how.
