Bringing Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF) and Spintronics beyond Earth
For more than 50 years since the 1970s, spacecraft, systems, and space stations have not been designed based on the principles of electromagnetism and spintronics.
As organisms and systems have evolved within Earth's magnetic field .2-.7 Gauss (20-70µT) and electric field (100-300 V/min) for billions of years, electromagnetic fields induce vibrations for ion transport, signaling, and molecular bonds to sustain the health of plants, humans, and life.
Founded in April 2022, Magneto Space (MS) is advancing R&D to enable PEMF, spintronics, and metamaterials to improve the performance of biological and abiotic systems in space, Moon, Mars, and beyond.

PEMF Signal Generator & FPGA Supplier and Mission Planning
Magneto is advancing the design, build, and software to commercialise the first PEMF signal generator and electromagnetically enhanced rad FPGA for spacecraft and space stations. In developing Alpha Software version, we collaborate with customers and partners to enable seamless mission planning and integration to maximise energy harvesting, transmission, storage and mission operations.
Modelling and Analysis of HMF and PEMF
After building and modelling two prototypes of HelmHoltz (HH) coils to cancel out the Earth's magnetic field, Magneto is conducting experiments and tests in the 2nd gen 12V 27kg HH coils with larger test bed in San Francisco Lab. With 3-5mG high field uniformity and plant growth in simulated NNMF, our team Magneto is offering free testing under simulated hypomagnetic field (sHMF) biological effects on cells, plants, bacteria, and materials of interest.
Hardware integration and advising
Electronics can be put into non-uniform bus configurations. Our high performance FPGA and smallsats hold potential to increase space systems power production by 2X+, yield 25%+ greater mission lifespan, and significantly reduced loss and costs. We collaborate with you to help integrate PEMF and spintronics with FPGA onboard spacecraft.
Magneto plans to design, build, tests, and launch of PEMF 6U Cubesat for first on orbit demo in Summer 2023. Custom PEMF Spin FPGA and software modelling results are available for larger spacecraft and satellites upon request. Magneto next gen software will predict bus electronics, subystems performance and interactions with electromagnetic fields to optimize payload designs.
Space mission design, analysis, and risk mitigation
Interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) in uG space oscillates from 2 and 8 nT and up to 300-600nT (30-60G) Crustal Field or (NNMF) has been observed on Moon and Mars (Xue, et al, 2021). Magneto will collaborate to build and install a low power, lightweight pulsed field device to mimic Earth's natural .2-.7 G or EM field for biology and systems of interest.
