2021 Exhibitor Products
D-Orbit’s ION Satellite Carrier is a space vehicle that can transport satellites in orbit and release them individually into distinct orbital slots, reducing the time from launch to operations by up to 85% and the launch costs of an entire satellite constellation by up to 40%. ION can also accommodate multiple third-party payloads like innovative technologies developed by start-ups, experiments from research entities, and instruments from traditional space companies requiring a test in orbit.
Exolaunch's newest product is a shock-free separation system CarboNIX available in 8", 15", 24" and custom sizes to launch 10-400 kg microsatellites on any launch vehicle. CarboNIXes have successfully deployed dozens of microsats for the leading smallsat constellation customers. A unique synchronous spring pusher system of CarboNIX separates satellites smoothly and evenly, without unwanted shocks or tumbling, making it the lowest-shock and lowest-tumbling separation system ever used in space. Lightweight and compact CarboNIX offers a zero-shock deployment, fast reset time (within minutes), ITAR-free nature, and solid flight heritage to deploy a single microsat and microsat constellations into space. Other products include the EXOpod, a cubesat deployer, to separate cubesats up to 16U and Reliant, an orbital transfer vehicle, to launch satellite constellations to custom destinations and tackle space debris.
Fraunhofer’s t 37 (MultiSat): A multifunctional sandwich panel developed by Fraunhofer LBF and RWTH Aachen combines structural and non-structural functions of a satellite. The presented panel is equipped with piezoelectric actuators, flat cables and optical fibres for vibration reduction, energy and data transfer. The host materials employ heat transfer, radiation shielding and impact protection functions.
The success of any space mission begins with reliable data transmission and Glenair’s Spacewire cables, built to meet the strict standards set forth by ECSS-E-ST-50-12C make this a reality. Glenair’s Spacewire cables offer bidirectional, high speed data transmission rates up to 400 Mbits/s while significantly reducing cross talk, skew, and signal attenuation. By incorporating a serial, point-to-point cable, with low voltage differential signalling (LVDS) reduced costs are realised through an easily integrated data transmission cable. These features allow Spacewire cables to be incorporated across various satellite data transmission programs without the expense of costly design customisation.

NanoFEEP: Morpheus Space developed the technology of the propulsion system during many years of research at the Institute of Aerospace Engineering of TU Dresden. At its core lies the FEEP technology specially developed for miniaturised applications using the low-melting metallic gallium propellant, as well as a chip-based neutraliser with the corresponding supply and control electronics. All the system’s components are optimised to deliver the best propulsion performance for the least amount of space, mass, and necessary electrical power, which are the most valuable commodities on board of a nanosatellite. Due to the system’s plug-and-play nature, the integration into a satellite platform is easy and highly customisable in order to fulfil the propulsion requirements of almost all low Earth orbit missions.
