Space Inventor’s 16U satellite with GEO options is configured from our modular subsystems, which provides the opportunity for buyers to tailor the satellite exactly to their needs. Our highly iterative development process secures an easy and safe integration procedure and provides the opportunity for module interchangeability. This procedure, which is seen across all Space Inventor platforms, relies on thorough analysis as well as subsystems that are updated at least once a year.
This satellite is available for the geostationary orbit with reduced payload capacity and reduced link speed. The 16U satellite is built with shielded high-reliability subsystems where each system has its own radiation shielding, EMI Shielding, thermal conduction path, and mechanical support. The 16U satellite platform can be extended with deployable solar panels where the ADCS system can provide Nadir or ground tracking whilst optimizing the power generation by rotating the entire satellite across the bore-axis optimizing the solar energy harvesting.
This 16U satellite by Space Inventor is the smallest satellite ever to go the geostationary orbit.
