Cílem projektu bylo identifikovat nedostatky malých družic typu CubeSat, jejichž spolehlivost a využitelnost pro reálné vědecké experimenty byla omezená, a navrhnout vhodnější řešení.


The digital slit sun sensor (DSSS) measures the position of the Sun with respect to its axes. It overcomes the disadvantages of the sun sensors used in the past, e.g. on Magion satellites, that were analogue cosine law sensors.This sensor mainly consists from COTS and industrial components and is therefore relatively cheap.

Gamma-ray calibration facility

Cosmic ray consists of many types of radiations and particles, the example is gamma-ray, which consists of energetic photons. The task of this project was to develop ESA’s reference station, on which would be possible to measure and calibrate the equipment prepared for spacecraft used for gamma-ray detection.

Mechanism industrialization

Frentech Aerospace has completed testing of solar array deployment mechanism. The mechanisms had to be made ​​in accordance with defined procedures and met all the technical specifications for use in space. All three pieces of mechanisms passed through the demanding tests.

Space year 2013

Czech astronautics made big achievements linked to two important projects. Modified detectors Timepix are going to be lifted off in April on ESA Proba-V. In the early summer time, three Swarm satellites are expected to be put onto their orbits.
