  • OPEPOR

    The technology and the fast growing number of spacecraft using Electric Propulsion got ahead the nowadays Flight Dynamics Systems, - slowly, yet surely - making them outdated. As a result, there is a need of a new Flight Dynamics System capable of computing faster and more accurately the curled trajectories described by the Electric Propelled Spacecraft.

  • MTSH

  • CADSAT

    Carrier aggregation is an integral part of current terrestrial networks. Its ability to enhance the peak data rate, for efficiently utilizing the limited spectrum resources and satisfying the demand for data-hungry applications, has drawn a significant attention. Given the benefits of carrier aggregation in the terrestrial wireless environment, this project investigates adopting this concept in the satellite domain.

  • P-DPS

    The P-DPS is part of Airbus All-electric propulsion system for telecommunication satellites for Electric Orbit Raising (EOR). The EOR satellite design uses the benefit of replacing chemical propulsion reservoir with lower size gas reservoir. The deployable system uses the robotic arm to position the propulsion vector in the optimum position and adjust to CoG movement in station.

  • ICEYE

    For the ICEYE precursor mission, FOTEC is developing an electric propulsion system. It is based on FEEP (field emission electric propulsion) ion thruster technology. A cluster of seven identical IFM nano thruster modules is manufactured - each capable of delivering up to 350 µN thrust. This redundant design ensures high reliability and versatility of the propulsion system.
