R&D OF unique, custom-built systems FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS
We bring together people from different fields and knowledge to create systems for a variety of applications using consolidate techniques and methods. From the concept to the final product, covering all the Technology Readiness Levels (TRL). the team members design and develop state-of-the-art space solutions.
MISSIONS AND PROJECTS TIMELINE
Ongoing missions and projects
2u cubesat SATELLITE
The mission is under development as a partnership between SpaceLab/UFSC, INPE, and the Brazilian Space Agency. It is a data collection mission, and an in-orbit technology demonstration for the Environmental Data Collection (EDC) module developed by INPE-RN. The modules designed by the SpaceLab team for the GOLDS-UFSC mission are based on the FloripaSat bus, and are employed also in other missions as Aldebaran-I and the Catarina Constellation.
Payload-XL / GOMX-5
Payload designed at SpaceLab, in a partnership with the European Space Agency (ESA/ESTEC) for the GOMX-5 mission. GOMX-5 is a 12U satellite from Gomspace, from Denmark. Payload-XL used the BRAVE NG-Large FPGA, provided by NanoXplore, from France.
SUB-ORBITAL launch mission
Research and development of scientific payloads to be used in a sub-orbital flight.
