Earth observation platforms may be equipped with infrared imaging/sensing capabilities requiring cryogenic cooling of their detectors. Whilst, observations in the SWIR domain may only require passive cooling, observations at longer wavelengths will need detectors to be actively cooled in the 40-150 Kelvin temperature range;

Electric Propulsion is a major breakthrough in platform architecture and is now used for all range of satellites, from scientific missions to telecom bus, from nano-satellites to 6 tons platforms, from one time project to constellations. Electric propulsion uses mainly xenon as propellant; other gases like krypton may also be used.
