AVIC and NEXEYA sign a partnership agreement

AVIC, the chinese aerospace giant, and NEXEYA signed on the 7th of March a long term partnership agreement.
The ceremony took place in Munich, in the presence of the management of AVIC EM, QAG, subsidiary of AVIC, Techsat, subsidiary of NEXEYA, and NEXEYA.
The parties agree to cooperate on research and development projects in the following areas: On-board system development, and Simulation, Integration and Test technology for safety-critical system development, production and maintenance.

They will also cooperate in business development to maximize the access to the aerospace markets worldwide, especially in China where the aerospace programs are ramping up very fast.
This Long Term Partnership is a new milestone in the cooperation between the parties for many years now.

NTU collaborates with NEXEYA to develop commercial nano-satellites

France and Singapore Year of Innovation 2018

Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore), NEXEYA Frances SAS (NEXEYA), and Censin Technology Pte Ltd (Censin) have joint forces to develop and market small nano-satellites for the region.

A Memorandum of Understanding between the three parties was signed during the Singapore Airshow. This is in conjunction with the France-Singapore Year of Innovation 2018. The partnership aims to introduce new concepts in the nano satellite segments with specific payload on board satellites less than 100 kg.

NTU Singapore, with its extensive research effort and achievement in satellites shall be embarking on a series of satellite technologies. There is a vast amount of NTU research that can be applied to the space borne application.

NTU has developed a multi-rotor based synthetic aperture radar (SAR). The lightweight flight system transmit radio frequency signal, which will be reflected from the ground. This information can be processed to form the ground image. This multirotor drone, which has high vibration during flight, is still capable of forming high quality images of 25cm×25cm resolution. From the image, small objects such as small boat, motorcycle and people can be detected.

The key objective is to build a small and reliable system, which is cost effective to have the earth observation capability throughout the day and night. This radar technology shall enable the view of the ground surface even at low lights or cloudy sky conditions. There will be further application usage when analysing and reprocessing the SAR images.

ANGELS will be available by the end of 2019

Development leads in record time for France’s first industrial nano-satellite

CNES and NEXEYA, which jointly co-invested and developed ANGELS (Argos Neo on a Generic Economical and Light Satellite), the first French industrial nano-satellite, successfully passed the Preliminary Definition Review of the system and satellite, signing the completion of preliminary studies, only seven months after the launch of the project, a real record and confirming the availability of ANGELS by the end of 2019.

The objective of this project, launched in May 2017, is to develop and commercialize a range of satellites weighing less than 50 kg, particularly suitable for missions with operational objectives such as data collection (ARGOS, AIS, M2M) or spectrum monitoring. The CNES plays the card of disruptive innovation, both at the technical and governance levels. He brings his expertise to the industrial consortium with a team of engineers with solid experience in space, integrated into NEXEYA’s project platform. Thus, it brings together the best players in the sector in an innovative and balanced cooperation by making its skills and expertise available to industrial entrepreneurs. At the same time, the miniaturisation of the ARGOS-neo payload by Syrlinks and TAS is progressing in the same spirit of innovation in all areas of this development.

All the ressources are focused on keeping the extremely ambitious schedule and meeting the launch date at the end of 2019. In this sense, the first electronic circuit board engineering models are already available and the detailed design review will be held in early 2018. Largely collaborative for NEXEYA, the ANGELS project gathers numerous industrial partners such as CS, Erems, Mecano-ID, SAFT, Spacebell and Steel. It also brings together multiple talents and takes up multiple challenges such as the resistance of the equipment to radiation, the control of disruptive electromagnetic emissions or the particularly short development schedule. This key milestone has now been successfully achieved and the Smallsat range will begin to be marketed, which will enable the French space industry to take its full place in NewSpace.
