The Imperial I-class Star Destroyer was propelled by several Cygnus Spaceworks Gemon-4 ion engines

Ion engines (also called ion drives and ion thrusters) were a common type of sublight drive. The drives generated charged particles that were then hurled from the rear of the ship, producing thrust in the process.[1] The many starfighter models in the TIE line were all equipped with twin ion engines.[2] The byproduct of such engines, the ion exhaust, made the passage of a ship detectable to sensors.[3]

At the time of the conflict between the First Order and the Resistance, Sienar-Jaemus Army Systems manufactured a number of ion drive models, including the SJAS-210 and the SJAS-200a.[1]
