500N Liquid Apogee Engines, which were developed by IA, have the top-level performance of ISP in the world. Since its start of IA's overseas business in 1999, IA has numerous flight experiences with JAXA-developed satellites and has exported to overseas satellite manufacturers.

With Boeing's selection of IA's 500N Liquid Apogee Engines, IA now provides its products for major N2H4/MON3 geostationary satellite platforms in the United States, including Lockheed Martin's A2100 and Orbital Sciences Corporation's GEOSTAR. IA has verified the high performance and reliability of its products through consecutive successes and no record of failure on orbit.
