R&D project in partnership with the University Space Center of Montpellier (CSUM)

The context

The commercialisation of space has expanded the market and opened opportunities for companies that can harness new technologies for satellites, nanosatellites and ground stations. Nanosatellites offer a new way to explore space due to their cost effectiveness and shorter production deadlines.

The project

Expleo is leveraging its proven expertise in both system and space engineering with ENSO, a nanosatellite R&D platform, that aims to characterise the ionosphere, measure solar activity and its impact on earth. ENSO allows easy access to the new space, with reduced costs due to the minimization of technologies, and faster deployment.

Our partner

The CSUM provides the nanosatellite building platform, offering its field experience and expertise to shape the infrastructure and resources that are necessary for the launch of the nanosatellite. The Expleo team is in charge of embedding the software that captures data from space and also developing the communication instruments in the ground control station that will facilitate digital signal processing.

Expleo’s expertise in action

  • Systems engineering (embedded and imaging systems, measurement sensors)
  • Space engineering (testbench architecture, software Defined Radios (SDR))
  • Testing methods
  • Test phases and AIT (Assembly, Integration and Test)

What’s next?

Once the research phase is approved, Expleo and the CSUM will develop, integrate and validate the satellite before it enters the market.
