The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment announced in November a $3million investment in the development of Dawn Aerospace’s environmentally friendly satellite propulsion technology, aimed at displacing a toxic fuel, hydrazine.
Wellington-born Dawn Aerospace general manager James Powell grew up in the Waikato before studying mechanical engineering at the University of Canterbury.
"He started talking to me about Dawn — and that there were some good ways we could combine his rocket knowledge along with the other founders of Dawn," James Powell said.
"That’s kind of how we brought together the rocket and the aircraft side of things."
