CisLunar Industries, a leading developer of hardware for in-space metal processing and power conversion, announced its successful first mission to space. On May 6, 2024, ThinkOrbital successfully operated an electron-beam welding system in space. CisLunar Industries developed the system that powered the operation, a 20kV power supply that boasts industry-leading size, weight, and power (SWaP).

CisLunar Industries was recently awarded a US patent for its modular configurable electronic power conversion system, which addresses key gaps in the current market for space electronics. With this completed mission, the company enters the ranks of commercial companies with space heritage.

"We were thrilled to have the team in Florida to witness this major milestone for CisLunar Industries and ThinkOrbital," said Gary Calnan, CEO of CisLunar Industries. "Our unit may even have safely powered one of the highest-voltage operations ever carried out in space."

"ThinkOrbital is grateful for the close partnership we have with CisLunar Industries," said Lee Rosen, CEO of ThinkOrbital. "Our first ever in-space autonomous welder would not be possible without their incredible and now space-proven high voltage power supply. Congratulations to Team CisLunar Industries on this historic mission!"

Born from CisLunar Industries' Space Foundry® system, this new power electronics technology enters the market at a time when the adoption of electric propulsion is accelerating, and other high-power space applications are emerging. Its small, light, and efficient architecture and modular design make it an attractive solution for a variety of missions.
