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
2u cubesat SATELLITE
An educational mission where students will be involved with the design and operation of a cubesat system in a space environment. Students will also learn about radio communications, digital communications, radio electronics, antennas.
An amateur radio mission will be implemented where the satellite functions as a digital store-and-forward repeater where digital frames will be stored and be relayed by the satellite. The amateur mission will have global coverage and will be accessible to any radio amateur. All students involved with the satellite operations will be required to have an amateur radio license.
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.
3u cubesat mission
The Serpens-I mission was developed by UnB team, with the support of a consortium of universities, including UFSC.
SUB-ORBITAL and ISS missions
Participation in the research and development of scientific payloads used in sub-orbital flights, and also on-board the International Space Station (ISS).
Payload for cubesats using the BRAVE rad-hard FPGA from Nanoxplore, with the institutional support from the European Space Agency (ESA).
1u cubesat SATELLITE
Launch date: 20 December 2019.
