Get to know our large satellite electronics

Beyond the world of nanosats, we participate in large satellite projects as the designer of power distribution systems and payload synchronization.

PLATO 2.0

Plato 2.0

C3S has designed and prototyped Ancillary Electrical Unit (AEU) for ESA’s PLATO 2.0 medium-size satellite mission aiming to detect and characterize extrasolar planetary systems. The AEU was responsible for power distribution and synchronization between the payload of 24 cameras and the platform. The project was closed in 2019 at TRL 3.

SMILE

SMILE

During the SMILE mission (Solar wind Magnetosphere Ionosphere Link Explorer) C3S is responsible for the development of the primary payload power supply. Two types of power modules are included in the unit. These are the power supplies for CCD cameras and digital subsystems. They have an FPGA as a main controller, which provides the telemetry from the boards, and handles the control signals. The project was closed in 2019 at TRL 4.
