HERMES PDR successfully closed

Oct 21, 2020

HERMES (High Energy Rapid Modular Ensemble of Satellites) Scientific Pathfinder (HERMES-SP) is a mission concept based on a constellation of nano-satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO), hosting new miniaturized detectors to probe the X-ray temporal emission of bright high-energy transients such as Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRB) and the electromagnetic counterparts of Gravitational Wave Events (GWE). The European Commission supported HERMES-SP project started in 2018, builds on a strong and cross-fertilizing collaboration between astrophysicists, engineering and industrial teams. The consortium with 11 members includes astrophysics teams and engineering teams from universities and research institutes and in four SME from space industry.

In this phase C3S investigated the required ground segments and made an analysis on using the Ground Segment with single and multiple Antenna Stations at multiple locations. C3S also made a trade-off study on the data transfer availability of the Iridium communication system. Besides, we investigated the UHF and S-band data link between the satellites and the Ground Segment to maximize the up- and downlinked data rate and examined the needed software or hardware modifications for our own Ground Station design in order to perform tests to demonstrate the proper functioning of the communication in the laboratory in 2021.

Our unique CubeSat structure is featured in NASA’s „State of the Art of Small Spacecraft Technology” study

NASA’s editor team reached out to us again this year, to introduce the improvements of innovative CubeSat structures previously shortlisted in their original study. We were honored to present the upgraded version of our structure, that uses backplane PCB for bus communication which is intended to provide independent assembly order, simplifies the stack-up tolerances, and uses space graded interface connectors.

C3S participated at the panel discussion of MOMENTUS under the SaaS Workshop: How to Host your Payload in Space

Milánkovics Dorottya, Project Manager of CubeSat projects represented C3S at the panel discussion organized by MOMENTUS during the SaaS Workshop: How to Host your Payload in Space. In the course of the talk, they covered C3S’s shared payload concept with Dorottya mentioning several use cases of such solution. Sharing the payload bay means a cost effective, short-term, and schedulable option to those research, university or IOD project owners who – due to the mission’s character or the small size of the payload – don’t insist on being launched on a sperate platform to LEO.
