HIGH CAPACITY BATTERIES
To upgrade energy storage capacity multiple battery
modules can be added to the power system.
DEPLOYABLE SOLAR PANELS
Total power generation capacity can be upgraded by adding
deployable solar panels on one or both sides of the satellite
platform. This is available for both 3U and 6U platforms with
two deployable wings on each side of the platform.
SUN TRACKING PANELS
For high power missions, it is possible to add solar panels that
can track the sun during the orbit of the satellite until it
enters eclipse. The solution and the available power output
depend highly on the type of orbit and flight modes of the
S-BAND BIDIRECTIONAL LINK
For increased data rates between satellite and ground station,
the satellite platforms can be upgraded with an S-band radio
and patch antenna with faster communication speeds.
INTER SATELLITE CROSSLINK
For constellations, Inter Satellite communications are crucial
for building the crosslinks amongst the satellites. Our S-Band
Inter Satellite radio and antennas allow for communicating
with satellites along the same orbital path as well as between
For downlink needs required by some missions, the X-band
radio and patch antenna offer unique data rate capabilities.
DELIVERING THE FUTURE
Communication solutions in higher bands are being developed
at present and will be available soon. Please contact GomSpace
to learn more about our coming communications solutions in higher
GomSpace Regulatory Affairs team can help you understand the
frequency allocation process and provide support in this respect to
make the most for your mission.
For satellites requiring very high accuracy in tracking performance GomSpace offers integration of a star tracker to fit mission requirements.
Cold gas propulsion provides fast dispersal of multiple satellites into same orbit, orbit maintenance during mission lifetime and decommissioning at end-of-life for the satellite.
HIGH RESOLUTION GYROSCOPE
GomSpace can provide a high accuracy MEMS based gyro to sample attitude data to improve ADCS knowledge of the satellite.
DEDICATED ADCS COMPUTER
On small satellites where higher attitude determination and control is needed, a dedicated on-board computer can be added. The ADCS computer also contains and integrated GPS module for increased knowledge of the orbital position.
To increase attitude control capabilities of a 2U or 3U satellite it is possible to add one or more reaction wheels to store angular momentum from the satellite. This is standard on our 6U platform.
