Orionspace Pty Ltd is a new Australian satellite company which provides products and supports for nano and small satellites. Our core technical team has participated in a several successfully launched satellite missions in the EU and China.
Company’s focus is primarily on innovative solutions for nano-satellites, our products cover electronic, mechanical and attitude control subsystems, we have also designed a series of miniaturised satellite payloads including remote sensing, radiation monitoring, and communication systems. A satellite education system is under development for introducing our satellite-based technology to younger students.
Orionspace Pty Ltd’s target is to engage with the growing market for nano-satellites, expanding the utility of satellite technology by our innovative products.
Our highly integrated “NAO 1c” main bus unit can provide you with a reliable, convenient and accessible control for your mission, it is designed for on-board computer (OBC), attitude determination & control system (ADCS) and also communication system (COMM) for nano-satellites. The fundamental design concept of “NAO 1c” system is based on accessibility & flexibility, different switchable and selectable modules such as GPS module, attitude and environment sensing modules are ready to be integrated to “NAO 1c” according to mission requirements.
“NAO 1c” system is based on an advanced low power ARM 32-bit Cortex M4 CPU; it is ideal for the missions which have limited resources. The integration requirement is minimized by our engineers, so you can just grab it and launch!
Our electrical power system “Ori-EPS 3c” can provide a safe and stable power supply with optimized power point tracking. It is also a security monitoring system for satellite housekeeping, “Ori-EPS 3c” can detect microcontroller and subsystem malfunctions and automatically switch to self-protection mode.
“Ori-EPS 3c” employs high efficiency boost-converters for charging the in-built lithium-ion batteries, the maximum power output of “Ori-EPS 3c” is 35W with controllable channels.
Our magnetorquer “Ori-MT P” for attitude control is a revolutionary design, it employs a three axis magnetic system. “Ori-MT P” magnetorquer does not require constant power input since the desired magnetic field is created by permanent magnets. “Ori-MT P” is superior in satellite detumbling and coarse attitude control at extremely low power consumption.
“Ori-RW 20D” reaction wheel is a dual actuator active attitude control system; it employs a DC motor and an ultrasonic piezoelectric motor, the precise low speed ultrasonic motor can be installed for extra high pointing accuracy control. “Ori-RW 20D” is an essential system for the missions which require a pointed payload such as laser communication and remote sensing.
“Ori-Spectra 2000” system employs a modified lens to maximize remote sensing performance, it is compatible with any satellite platform which is larger than a 3 Unit Cubesat. “Ori-Spetra 2000” provides a long physical focal range up to 2000mm, this compact design allows nano-satellites to participate in more remote sensing missions.
