OPTICAL COMMUNICATIONS - CYCLOPS

ODYSSEUS develops CYCLOPS, an optical communications terminal for microsatellites, based on a payload developed by Paris Observatory which has flown in Space in 2018.

 

This compact and integrated module will allow for duplex inter-satellite & space-to-ground communications, while paving the way for long range, energy efficient and high data rate exchange of information, supporting the solar system exploration with small satellites. 

 

This Laser Communication Terminal development is financed under a contract awarded by the European Space Agency through a Luxembourg Space Agency programme and officially kicked-off in July 2019. 



Autonomous NAVIGATION - ASTRAEUS

ODYSSEUS develops ASTRAEUS to provide Autonomous Guidance Navigation & Control capabilities to spacecraft anywhere in the Solar System.

 

Its unique algorithm is especially adapted to missions to the Moon and beyond. 

 

This technology is representative of ODYSSEUS interest in solutions increasing the autonomy, the level of decision making and the efficiency of small satellites.



PAST PROJECTS


ELECTRICAL PROPULSION - ARGO

Based on a core technology developed at the National Cheng Kung University, the ARGO module includes an efficient, competitive and low consumption single Pulse Plasma Thruster (PPT) which delivers precise attitude control capabilities to the user. 

 

Kicked-off in 2018, a TRL 5 version of ARGO was delivered by ODYSSEUS in November 2019 as a result of a R&D programme funded by the Ministry of Economic Affairs of Taiwan. This project helped to foster Space technology development in Taiwan via a Public-Private partnership.
