We go beyond the normal by combining various and new technologies enhanced by our own products.
We will get our structure and subsystems to the Moon by 2030. By that time we will have our products and services on every continent. Due to our know-how and experience we have capabilities to cover the full project/mission: mission definition and analysis, mechanical design, structural and thermal analysis, development, manufacturing, integration, assembly, testing, qualification and launch. On top of that we have few of our own critical subsystems in house.
During our mission we want to cooperate and strengthen relationships between industry, universities, scientific institutions and to create added value, together. We give a chance to rare technologies which have never been used in space before. We seek new ideas. We look for new purpose of existing technologies. We combine. We do things differently. We’re not afraid of unproofed solutions. We let innovation happen.
Due to our know-how and experience, we are able to cover the full project cycle. We start from mission definition and analysis followed by the system development during which we perform system engineering,
mechanical design, structural and thermal analysis, electrical and software development, subsystems procurement, manufacturing, integration, assembly, testing, qualification and finally provide you with launch.
Satellite development & system engineering
Small satellites are becoming more and more important for both economy and science. Our main focus is custom development of satellites up to 300 kg. We offer both full development and coengineering activities where our customer can pick which systems or subsystems will be developed by him, which by us and what activities will be done together.
High-altitude platform systems (HAPS)
Stratospheric platforms offer unique observation capabilities compared to satellites, including higher resolution, station keeping, continuous monitoring, reusability, lower carbon footprint, and most importantly, a quick and easy launch from anywhere on the planet. A satellite with such performance would be extremely costly and still would not be able to provide data and solutions at that speed and quality.
Stratospheric platforms enable more accessible customization and an ideal mid-step in building capabilities and competencies for space-based subsystems. We equip the Stratosyst HAPS with different sensors (hyperspectral, LiDAR, visible spectrum) and provide unique remote-sensing solutions to our onboard data processing and data analytics. Any type of technology can be utilized on the Stratosyst HAPS: visible spectrum camera, hyperspectral, LiDAR or communication subsystem. We are developing a Flash LiDAR system for vegetation and topography mapping as well as object detection.
Onboard data processing
On-board payload data processing encompasses the data acquisition, transfer, storage, data compression or reduction and transmission to ground of instrument and sensor data. Quite often the amount of raw data generated by modern instruments is in excess of what can be transmitted to the ground.
This is where the need for on-board data processing comes with our solution, we can reduce the amount of data you need to download by tens of percents and prioritize data with the highest value.
Cyber security for satellites
Each year, we are becoming more reliant on satellites, and space-based applications are now utterly critical to the large and growing range of services on which our citizens and economies depend. These range from navigation, broadcasting and weather forecasting to monitoring the health of our planet’s climate and the conditions of land, oceans and inhabited areas. Protecting these assets is important for both governments and companies, as they have tremendous value. We are working on an end-to-end solution for access management and secured communication to protect your assets.
LiDAR systems utilizing reflected photons from emitted laser pulses have a variety of uses. With the growing number of objects in space, our Flash LiDAR will provide satellites with their own precise near-object detection for collision avoidance. Similarly, a Doppler LiDAR system for detecting, tracking and characterizing close and distant objects can be used as a sensor for Space Traffic Management networks. Another application of our LiDAR systems is topography mapping with submeter resolution for planetary missions as well as Earth’s surface mapping from the Stratosyst stratospheric platform.
Lunar Geology Orbiter (LUGO)
We are building a Moon mission to explore Lunar sub-surface structures by 2030. This unique space exploration mission will generate groundbreaking scientific knowledge, provide critical information about future Lunar habitats and space resources utilization and develop capabilities for upcoming commercial Lunar activities (Lunar communication and remote sensing).
LUGO will probe irregular mare patches from a low-flying orbit before hitting one of them with an impactor to find out not only their age, but age of Lunar volcanism. Further, LUGO will provide high-resolution topography, sub-surface and spectral data to begin mapping lava tubes and caves as ideal areas for permanent settlements thanks to their radiation and micrometeorite protection, stable temperatures and resource potential. We will provide topography and remote sensing for future rover operations and look for resource-rich non-polar areas for ISRU operations.
TROLL is the name of the Czech demonstration nanosatellite mission performed in commercial, new space approach, but still required to follow the ECSS. Mission’s purpose is to demonstrate new technologies, to build up experience and heritage in our territory and to be the biggest Czech satellite. An additional important condition of the whole activity is to use resources exclusively and only from the Czech Republic and countries from Three Seas Region - maximum 20% of the budget can be assigned outside of this territory.
TROLL is planned to be launched within the mid 2024. After the successful in orbit demonstration TROLL will provide an opportunity(ies) for further demonstrations (for example in SW field) of third parties, academic institutions, students or startups.
Company major value is quality 9+. This means that on a scale 0 to 10 we want to achieve a quality score of 9 or more. It applies to everything we do: how our products look, how good our service is, how we communicate, how we behave, what kind of working tools we have. We never compromise.
This is a list of seven values based on which our company is built upon.
The objective of the Golem X project is the research, development, production and semi-operation of the Experimental Global Orbital Electro-Optical System in order to verify the technologies, activities, characteristics and other parameters of the satellite observation system in low orbit. Our collaboration will result in a low Earth orbit carrier of these technologies and its subsequent semi-operation for at least 12 months for practical verification of these technologies.
Our company will be involved in the development, launch and operation of the system in low orbit in terms of research and development of components, design of the test facility, its launch to low orbit, its operation including stabilization, orbital maneuverability, tasking, control of subsystems, acquisition of electro-optical data, acquisition of telemetry data, communications, termination and other necessary steps.
Lunar Geology Orbiter to provide high-resolution topography, sub-surface and spectral data in support of above-mentrioned lunar activities. This includes mapping of lava tubes and caves as ideal areas for radiation and micrometeorite-protected habitats, identifying resource-rich non-polar areas for ISRU operations and providing detailed topography in support of rover operations.
Selecting suitable areas for settlements, surface exploration missions, support operations, and in-situ resource utilization on the Moon requires detailed lunar geology mapping. This includes precise data on sub-surface prospecting (lava tubes and caves), surface topography and more detailed compositional spectroscopy.
Our mission includes also testing the technologies for space laser communication from the Moon will help build laser communication systems between satellites, ground and deep space missions.
While such data has been collected by various campaigns, it is not available in the robustness and detail needed for planning long-term lunar operations. Due to the vastness of the Lunar surface, the adequate mapping is also unlikely to be provided by rovers in needed coverage and time.
