The SXC6 nanosatellite platform is a multipurpose, combinable set of onboard service systems and structural elements for the development of a small satellite in the CubeSat 6U format. It is possible to install any payloads, compatible with SXC6 ICD.

SXC6-ADC is platform configuration with basic three-axial ADCS. Allows to orient the spacecraft in space. This modification has the following systems:

• redundant PSS with battery and deployable solar panels

• redundant UHF transceiver with patch and deployable dipole antennas

• redundant electromagnetic system of angular velocity damping

• redundant ADCS control unit with a set of sensors

• partially redundant reaction wheels unit

• set of solar sensors

 

*Standard modification. Can be changed for particular project.

 

Contents:

• SXC6 platform assembled

• Transportation case

• USB cable

• Charger

 

Options included::

  • AS - Assembling and verification on manufacturer site
  • TFF - Basic functional testing with protocol: PSU cycling, radio channel, electromagnetic angular velocity damping test

 

 Available options:

• XTX - X-Band high speed transmitter with antenna.

• GNSS - set of GNSS receiver with antenna (1 or 2 sets).

• CAM - a set of control boards and survey technological cameras for obtaining photo and video data of the spacecraft surfaces and the environment. The control board is based on SXC-MBB-06.

• MGM - a remote sensor unit of increased accuracy (magnetometer, AVS) to improve the accuracy of the ADCS.

• STAR - star tracker  kit with adapter board.

 

 Additional services:

• SXC6-TM - mechanical and thermal vacuum tests with SXC6 special equipment. The price is fixed for 1 spacecraft.

• SXC6-PLR - design review of the payload (study of the electrical circuit in terms of interfaces, software and 3D model). The price is estimated individually.

• SXC6-PLI - integration of PN: mechanical (brackets), electrical (cables, power supply), informational (interface adapters, software revision). The price is estimated individually.

• SXC6-FL - preparation of 1 spacecraft for launch: certificates for GK LS, fixing of connections, etc.
