GomSpace’s line of power supplies for nanosatellites date back to the AAU-cubesat student satellite launched in 2003 with continuous improvements and lessons learned integrated into the product line since then.
For the smaller platforms the power supply model is the NanoPower P31 version, which has flown successfully on many missions.
For platforms larger than 3U GomSpace recommends the NanoPower P60 system that has been developed as a very flexible solution for advanced and demanding spacecrafts. It is fully qualified and will be integrated with the GOMX-4A and B satellites in 2017.
Our battery packs are based on COTS cells screened and modified in house for use in space and we have a extensive flight experience with these cells.
Note that when selecting a battery pack for a platform the depth-of-discharge (DoD) is a very important parameter for determining the life-time of the satellites. Contact our sales team for more information on recommended values for your mission profile.
GomSpace solar panels are based on 30% efficient ITAR free cells and our panels are available in different configurations integrating magneto-torquers, coarse sun-sensors and temperature sensors.
