A novel design approach reduces part numbers in the satellite structure allowing for the easiest and most reliable integration procedure with 360° access to internal systems. Our satellites and sub-systems rely on thorough analysis, design and test to ensure successful operation in space.

Description:

The satellite platform is designed with reliability as the primary design driver. It uses the shielded hi-rel subsystems: Batteries, power conditioning and distribution, communication and attitude control. Each system has its own radiation shielding, EMI shielding, thermal conduction path, and mechanical support.

– 3.3V, 5V or unregulated battery supply

– up to 6 power channels

– Data interface: CAN with CSP protocol

– Compatible with CubeSat Kit (PC104)

– Glenair Micro-D mechanical interface connector

– Available volume: 1.25 units

Physical:

– Mass: 1.7 kg (excluding payload)

– Form factor: 2U CubeSat

– Material: AL7075-T6 + Alodine

Communication:

– Dual hot-redundant transceivers

– UHF Half Duplex

– FSK 4800, 9600, 19200 Baud

– Coding: Convolutional + block code

– Protocol: CSP

Power Plant:

– Photo voltaic Body-fixed panels

– AzurSpace 3G30A cells: 5S x 4 + 2S x 2

– Batteries: LiIon 7.4V 40Wh

– Output busses: 12 (6 available for payloads)

Attitude Determination and Control:

– Magnetic sensing
