Robust structure, fine details
C3S LLC develops and manufactures highly dependable 3/6/12/16U platforms and redundant, yet affordable subsystems like OBC, EPS, and communication modules to meet the requirements of IoT, Earth Observation and space monitoring constellation missions. Beyond the world of CubeSats, we participate in large satellite projects as the designer of power distribution systems and payload synchronization. Our devoted team will be at your service from mission planning throughout the operation of the entire mission, until deorbiting.
We develop our scalable 3-16U platforms for constellation purposes focusing on Earth Observation and IoT. By providing tailored space and technology for payloads of different sizes, we can foster diverse segments from crop growth monitoring through disaster damage mitigation to IOD demands. Our solutions contribute to the protection of our planet, agricultural improvement, and the better involvement of socially and economically isolated regions.
Our platforms employ in-house developed, powerful & robust subsystems for the success of your mission.
Large Satellite Electronics
Beyond the world of nanosats, we participate in large satellite projects as the designer of power distribution systems and payload synchronization.
C3S’s vast resources and the complex & interdisciplinary engineering know-how are all used for the benefit of high reliability components development along with quality-centered low volume manufacturing, both within the ground and the space segment. Our enthusiastic engineers have great experience in advanced electronics, integrated system designs, mechanical engineering or embedded software and are following strict ECSS standards.
Platform Development Kit
For a seamless integration process, we provide our payload partners with a Platform Development Kit. Interface documentation enables our clients to take full advantage of the devices and it also provides the required hardware to maintain a rea-time connection during the tests.
C3S provides turn-key solution when it comes to mission management. As an ESA prime contractor, we have vast experience in every milestone of a space project from mission preparation, through launch management until deorbiting. We guarantee mission success, all you have to do is share your goals and requirements with us.
Shared Payload Concept
Space made easily available with our shared payload concept, aligning with the most recent new space trends. Splitting up the payload bay of our platform between multiple players grants a cost-effective solution, along with giving a shorter-term access to space.
Bye-bye RADCUBE, hello RADCUBE!
One year ago, on a starlit August night, with tearful eyes we watched the launch of RADCUBE. Since then, our 3U satellite has orbited the Earth more than 5 000 times and delivered exciting information about space weather and magnetic field. Thank you EK, ICL,...
Find a GRASSHOPPER on the picture!
There is no milestone our GRASSHOPPER wouldn’t leap. We proudly post that together with ESA and Thales Alenia Space we closed the GRASSHOPPER’s Design Review, so now, before jumping to TRL5, we can concentrate on the climate chamber measurement and thermal simulation...
RadCube mission’s commissioning phase has come to an end and the satellite keeps on fulfilling its duties!
Since it has been set to LEO on 17 August 2021, RadCube operates well. On the platform developed by C3S LLC, every operation went according to the plans: solar wings have opened, the boom has been deployed, and at the end of the multistep commissioning phase, RadMag...
