Fugro and GomSpace deliver world class position and timing accuracy onboard LEO satellites

Fugro and GomSpace announced a cooperation around the SpaceStar[TM ]product in 2020. Since then, the first SpaceStar systems have gained flight heritage and proven a stunning performance: Real time, sub-decimetre absolute positioning on board a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite without additional ground-infrastructure for the satellite operator.

SpaceStar relies on GomSpace’s Software Defined Radio (SDR) with Fugro’s software utilizing real-time orbit and clock corrections from geostationary (GEO) satellites.

The SDRs are delivered by GomSpace with the Fugro SpaceStar software pre-installed, and the customer signs a service agreement with Fugro to use the system in space.

GomSpace has recently received an additional product order from a well-known and returning customer that will use the SpaceStar system on multiple satellites.

“We are excited about the cooperation with Fugro and having SpaceStar on the market as a standard product. The performance demonstrated in space is amazing” says Carsten Drachmann, CEO of GomSpace.

SpaceStar provides sub-decimetre absolute positioning and nanosecond-level timing, on board the satellite, in real-time, and without additional ground-infrastructure. A truly unique capability that can be instrumental in advanced missions involving rendezvous and docking or precise formation flying.
