The 1U Standard Platform enables simple experiments in space for signal reception and Earth Observation. It is a good choice for projects that require a small platform for doing nanosatellite integration and in-space operation training.
The satellite platform has been used in several Academic programs since 2014.

Main Application Areas1U Exterior

  • Radio communication
  • Earth Observation Experiments
  • Academic programs


The 1U standard platform is tested and ready for integration of your payload, or it can be upgraded with a GomSpace provided payload consisting of a RGB camera with a 35 mm lens providing 60m per pixel resolution at 650km orbital altitude. 

Integration and Environmental Tests

The platform and its elements have been qualified according to the GomSpace qualification program, which includes tests in: Vibration, thermal cycling, heated vacuum, radiation and thermal stress.

The platform is tested and ready for payload integration. Payload integration is offered by GomSpace as a paid service.
