OPTICAL COMMUNICATIONS - CYCLOPS

ODYSSEUS is developing 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 communications, while paving the way for long range, energy efficient and high data rate exchange of information, supporting 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. 



Autonomous GUIDANCE NAVIGATION & CONTROL

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. 

 

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.

 

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

 

 



ELECTRICAL PROPULSION: ARGO

The ARGO Project is addressing the fast growing small satellite market by developing a low cost and reliable  propulsion system for this class of satellites.

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 precise attitude control capabilities to the user. 

 

ODYSSEUS delivered a TRL 5 version of ARGO as part of a R&D programme funded by the Ministry of Economic Affairs of Taiwan.
