Since 2016, ODYSSEUS Space aims at increasing the flow of goods and information in the Solar System. For this purpose, the company is developing essentials cost-effective technologies such as autonomous navigation and laser communication adapted to small satellites.


The technologies developed by ODYSSEUS can already address the small satellite constellations market while paving the way for future applications in the Space Resources Utilisation value chain. With existing and new partners, ODYSSEUS plans to contribute to other technology developments required to explore the Solar System with small satellites.


With its team of international experts located in both Luxembourg and Taiwan, ODYSSEUS has been providing its services in Europe and Asia for several years and is capable of acting as a bridge between both Space markets. 



ODYSSEUS was created in 2016, by space professionals with extensive experience in space agencies, research institutions and nanosatellite industries in Europe and Asia.


ODYSSEUS team members have already participated in 15+ small satellite missions from 7 different countries. 8 have been already successfully launched and operated.


Established in Taiwan in 2016, ODYSSEUS benefits from its partnership with the high tech campus of the National Cheng Kung University which provides access to its latest research and development facilities and expertise in small satellites. 


Since 2019, ODYSSEUS moved the major part of its activities to Luxembourg after winning the 2018 Space Resources Award. ODYSSEUS focuses on developing autonomous navigation (ASTRAEUS) and optical communication (CYCLOPS) technologies there. 


Additionally to its small satellite technologies development, ODYSSEUS provides support at all phases, from feasibility studies to space operations, for space activities in Asia and Europe, with a focus on small satellites missions. 


ODYSSEUS is playing a major role in enhancing and facilitating international cooperation between Asia and Europe with the rest of the world in order to put together innovative concepts and technologies to push back the boundaries of what is currently feasible with small satellite missions.


ODYSSEUS aims at providing innovative technologies and solutions for the future of constellations & deep space exploration small satellite missions. 

The following technologies are part of ODYSSEUS interest and development plan:

  • AI for increased spacecraft autonomy 
  • Optical communications for high-speed & secured communications
