3U - GOMX-3
The picture to the right is of GOMX3 satellite launched in 2015. Its design is based on the following selections:
- 3U Core Platform Package
- Fine ACS & ADS
Based on this platform the satellite integrated three payloads: ADS-B receiver, SDR experiment & an X-band transmitter experiment.
The satellite provides the following key resources to these payloads:
- Payload volume: 2U
- Average available power for payloads: 3.5W
- Pointing performance: 1-2 degrees
- Downlink per day: 3 MB (1 ground station, ISS orbit)
A 3U platform with this or a similar configuration are ideal for demonstration missions e.g. to demonstrate new radio techniques using our SDR payload.
