As part of an international consortium including Paris Observatory and NCKU, ODYSSEUS is developing an autonomous Guidance and Navigation Control technology with applications for small satellites
swarms or constellations in Earth Orbit or Deep Space environment.
Based on the innovative ARGO Pulse Plasma Thruster, this technology would for instance allow autonomous interplanetary trajectory correction maneuver, or significantly increase the management efficiency and the positioning of large constellations of small satellites.
ODYSSEUS is developing together with experts from Paris Observatory an optical communications solution based on a payload which has flown in Space in 2018. ODYSSEUS is working on an optical terminal for small satellites, for duplex "space/ground" and in a later version inter-satellite communications. A ground station (transceiver, optical device and tracking system) dedicated to optical duplex "space/ground" communications will be developed too.
With an idea of pulsed solid propulsion and local partners with propulsion expertise and available infrastructure, ODYSSEUS is developing a product that will be highly innovative and performance while remaining cost-competitive compared to similar subsystems.
The ARGO Project is addressing the fast growing small satellite market by developing a low cost and reliable orbit control propulsion system for this class of
Based on a core technology developed at the National Cheng Kung University, this module includes an efficient, competitive and low consumption single Pulse Plasma Thruster (PPT), which delivers sufficient thrust to extend significantly the duration of a small satellite mission in orbit, or by de-orbiting this satellite when its mission is over, therefore following good practices and guidelines as introduced and promoted by the space industry and international organisations.
