Sky and Space Global ready to assemble nanosatellite network

By

Satellite communications provider Sky and Space Global has completed the critical design review of the Pearls satellite, which now allows immediate assembly and integration of its nanosatellite network.

The CDR process was undertaken by Sky and Space’s global aerospace construction partner GomSpace, a European based, Nasdaq listed contractor, specialising in the construction and testing of bespoke nano-satellites.

The ASX-listed Sky and Space (ASX:SAS) will deploy a constellation of 200 highly sophisticated nano-satellites over the Equatorial Belt.

SAS says the network of nano-satellites will provide around the clock affordable voice, data, instant messaging, M2M and IoT communications, enabling it to implement its worldwide communications services vision to provide communication services.

“We have successfully completed the CDR with GomSpace, reaching another milestone and remaining on track for next year’s planned launch,” said Meir Moalem, co-founder, managing director and chief executive at SAS.

He said the positive results from the CDR validated the company’s technology, supports its strategy aimed at achieving the goal of providing connectivity to remote geographical locations.

The CDR process assesses all technical components including schedule, overall design, altitude control performance and system budgets (mass, power and link), to ensure each part is of the highest quality and meets the required standard to progress to the construction phase.

Moalem said the review concluded that the design presented by GomSpace to SAS complies with the requirements, and the Pearls can now progress to assembly and integration, which will also be undertaken by GomSpace.

Assembly and integration are scheduled to commence immediately and construction of the first batch of Pearls is expected to be completed on time for the planned launch.
