The First Space-Tolerant CubeSat!
Did you know that 50% of all CubeSats Failed or Didn’t Respond?
Small satellites can be cheap and reliable, if the design is carefully considered…
A lot of CubeSats died due to the underestimated link or power budgets, lot of them due to manufacturing failures and anothers due to space weather conditions. Traditional terestrial design approaches of commercial electronics are not so good to be launched into space.
The CzechTechSat project is:
build around flight-proven or well-known components/microcircuit dies, properly selected based on long-term research and radiation tests
manufactured from vacuum-proof, flight-proven materials, compounds, solder, glues, batteries, etc.
properly calculated hardware platform taking into account the worst case conditions
a project which should test the conventional small satellite subsystems with the Deep-space ambitions
a precursor of a bigger platform
