A flexible solution

CubeSpace provides flexible and customizable solutions based on our existing hardware and software components. Some clients, especially in universities and other educational institutions, prefer to write ADCS algorithms themselves. In other cases, specific missions require unique algorithms to achieve their objectives.

CubeSpace can provide custom solutions when required but we also offer options to let you write your own code on our hardware.

How it works

  • You get our complete CubeADCS, including all the hardware you need for your mission, integrated and tested at CubeSpace
  • You get all the software we would normally deliver with CubeADCS with our own proven filters and controllers
  • In addition, you receive two open functions: one to write your own filters and the other for your controllers
  • You can have access to libraries to use all the sensors and actuators included within the bundle, that you can use to write your own ADCS software
  • You still benefit from our fault detection, isolation and recovery (FDIR) and you can fall back on our proven algorithms at any time during operations

Use cases

Educational missions

Ideal for educational missions where students are taught to design Kalman filters and controllers. This allows young engineers to implement real algorithms and test them in orbit while always having a safe and proven backup and relying on reliable hardware provided by CubeSpace.

Custom controllers

In some cases, custom controllers are needed to perform certain missions. CubeSpace can design and implement these for you but you can also write them yourselves. Examples include moon tracking, GEO satellite tracking, and following a specific target.
