Your microsatellite partner

Space Inventor is a satellite manufacturer focusing on providing microsatellites in the range from 10 kg to 150 kg using a modular and scalable platform where high performance, reliability and innovation form the common denominator.

 

Space Inventor’s team has 250+ years combined experience in the space industry. Our mission is to tirelessly play with our predisposed limitation for satellite engineering and create beauty and innovation in space technology.

Space Inventor is experienced in the full life cycle of space missions from planning through concept development, satellite manufacturing, launch and operations.

 

The design team has worked together on avionics modules spanning the entire range of nano- and microsatellite busses since the early 2000s, and during that period taken part in re-defining the quality level of micro and nanosatellite products several times.

To service the market, Space Inventor offers a series of standard avionics products within power, on-board computers, radio communication, and ADCS systems and also fully integrated satellite missions. Furthermore, we understand the need for tailoring and customizing the individual missions, hence we also provide engineering services for custom development and mission design.

With the experienced team at Space Inventor, we are able to provide a fast track of making reliable new-space solutions with high quality and performance that matches our clients’ mission requirements.

Operational strategy

 

Space Inventor is organized with a strong focus on providing tailored microsatellite solutions based on our extended range of high performance avionics modules.
Our organization is based on three interconnected circles:

 

Solutions

The solution circle is responsible for conceiving and selling custom satellite concepts using our off-the-shelf satellite modules. All aspects of designing, building, launching and operating satellites are performed by the solutions team.

 

Innovation

The innovation circle is the home of our avionics development teams who invent and develop all the hardware and software that form our satellite modules. These teams are also responsible for flight qualifying the modules and maturing them for production.

 

Factory

The factory circle is purely a satellite module factory. Here, all our avionics modules are manufactured and tested in batches and stocked ready for use in our satellite solutions. The production follows stringent standards for workmanship in order to achieve space flight quality in all our products

Development of customised space system from design to flight units.

Support and knowledge transfer training engineers and operators in all processes around designing and flying a mission in space.

Microsatellite avionics with space heritage

All Space Inventor components are hardened by design and formed with microsatellite performance in mind. The ultra modular approach allows our reliable modules to be interchangeable between micro- and nanosatellites, which is apparent through the use of stand-alone enclosures with hi-rel connectors. Our design process takes a number of quality-enhancing steps towards reliability of our products – providing a steady base for rapid product development.

 

 

  • Careful COTS approach.
  • TID screening of critical components.
  • Sector analysis of shielding using ray tracing of complex geometries.
  • Expected TID tolerances available for different orbits.
  • Shielding by design.
  • Minimum 50% over-design of electrical circuits.
  • Distributed and flexible rather than centralized and unadaptable.
  • Designed for microsatellites, Space Inventor’s modules still conform to CubeSat envelope restrictions.
