The InnoSat platform, developed in 2012, offers a highly versatile and flexible platform service for a large range of space missions both institutional as commercial. The InnoSat platform comes in three configurations to meet our customer demands in a standardized fashion whilst offering an as tailored fit as possible; InnoSat light, InnoSat Medium and InnoSat heavy. All OHB Sweden’s InnoSat platforms are designed to fit within most piggyback launch envelopes, maximizing the launch opportunities for our customers. InnoSat is built around a set of core elements that can be re-used (both hardware and software) whilst offering high performance in terms of pointing, stability, power, data downlink and autonomy to fit most mission needs.

The key performance factors of the InnoSat baseline platform are listed below. Should higher power be needed, the design support additional solar panels which are optimized for different LTAN’s in a SSO.

OHB Sweden is one of Europe’s leading propulsion suppliers. Our knowledge and experience cover the complete range of different propulsion systems; electric propulsion, liquid propulsion as well as cold gas propulsion. We are able to understand and define the propulsion system, from the very early project stage and throughout the development and operating phase.

For the European Space Agency’s successful pioneer mission to the Moon, the SMART-1 mission, OHB Sweden implemented the highly efficient propulsion technology. In the demanding SmallGEO telecom satellite product line, OHB Sweden is providing the electric propulsion subsystem.

To enable the most recent addition to the SmallGEO product line, the full EP Electra platform, an electric propulsion subsystem is mandatory as it provides both the orbit transfer and station-keeping abilities, resulting in a significant mass saving and consequently larger payload mass.
For the ESA Solar Orbiter mission, OHB Sweden provides the chemical propulsion subsystem together with Airbus DS.

In close relation with OHB Sweden’s mission analysis team, AOCS department and AIV team, we are able to understand and define mission system and AIV needs on the propulsion system in early project stages. Today OHB Sweden has experience of a number of types of propulsion systems; electric propulsion, liquid propulsion, cold gas propulsion development framework.

Our capabilities and skills cover a wide range of areas; specification, procurement, manufacturing of propulsion hardware, design, analysis routing, accommodation of tubing and propulsion system components, plume impingement, thermal hydraulic, spacecraft charging, control algorithms FMECA/FDIR safety analysis, in-house facilities, in-house tubing fitting and bracket manufacturing, titanium orbital welding, radiographic inspection, cleaning and cleanliness verification, subsystem integration and test, ground flight operations procedures, encompassed technologies, electric propulsion.

OHB Sweden develops satellite guidance, navigation and control systems for innovative space projects. Our engineers are committed to achieve the highest standards in meeting our customers’ expectations of successful space missions. With extensive experience in spinners, low cost- and high performance 3-axis control systems, sensor technologies and navigation strategies for Rendezvous and Formation Flying in space, OHB offers world leading technological innovative capabilities within AOCS.

Our development framework covers:

  • ECSS-compliant design and verification processes
  • mission analysis
  • specification and procurement of sensors and actuators
  • development of state of the art AOCS flight software
  • high-performance 3-axis attitude control guidance for orbit transfer and station keeping
  • advanced orbit control for formation flying and rendezvous
  • system level simulator development software
  • spacecraft system level testing
  • flight dynamics
  • subsystem integration and test operations.

In-house we also have the SATLAB software system test environment, covering real-time simulation environment, EM computers in-the-loop, CAN-bus in-the-loop, other H/W simulated towards CAN i/f. Additional H/W can be included for H/W in-the-loop testing, commanded with real operational software through the RAMSES mission control system, expandable for S/C system test with FM H/W.
