The opportunity 
Daily, satellites are asked to collect data from thousands of targets of interest but with the current approach, most of the targets are missed because the technology is inadequate.

Current approach

Current approach

99.5% of satellites are made to look always down to collect Data

Problem

Problem

SATELLITES MISS MOST OF THE TARGETS THEY COULD COLLECT BECAUSE THERE IS JUST NO TECHNOLOGY TO DO IT DIFFERENTLY. It is a missed opportunity.

Our solution

Our solution

We offer the first modular next-gen actuator technology enabling any satellite to be more effective in collecting DAta from targets of interest.
We deliver satellite agility improving the effectiveness and the manoeuvring time of your satellites to collect more data & increase your target collection frequency.
Our vision

Why choose veoware?

V
Our team exists to make the most complex systems easier to use and available to all types of customers. Our scalable standard products address our customer’s needs rapidly and they no longer need to wait for custom-made solutions.
We set our sights high. We look for people who speak up when they disagree, people who get bored easily, the ones who hate status-quo and strive to be multidimensional, combining technical depth with business savvy and creative flair.
PORTFOLIO
ATTITUDE CONTROL SYSTEM (ACS) DESIGN

From Requirements to Simulation and Design.

Our team will support mission analysis, help you define ACS requirements, simulate your required attitude and propose a best ACS design. We will compare different actuator technologies and support you in making the best trade-off.

REQUIREMENTS REVIEW

Assessing Torque, Momentum, Bias & Noise, Microvibrations & Jitter for your Earth Observation / Telecom / etc mission.

Simulate & EVALUATE DESIGN DRIVERS

Based on your pointing requirements, we will simulate Power, Momentum and Torque profiles. We will also provide recommendations on Mass, Interface and Volume for different actuators solutions.

Best Design

We propose a design compliant with your need. With our expertise, we can optimise the balance between agility, complexity and cost.

RESULTS

Final report for engineers and commercial slides for decision makers, including mathematical model for further simulations.

CONTROL MOMENT GYROSCOPE

Large satellites have used this state-of-the-art actuator technology for decades to enable high-agility missions (WorldView 2-3-4, Pléiades, Spot 5-6-7, etc).
What is a CMG? Learn more.

We miniaturized it for small satellites applications and made it modular & scalable.

Ultra High Torque/ low volume

From 0.5 – 2.8 Nms Momentum capacity with 1- 3 Nm Torque fitting into a 100 x 100 x 150 mm volume envelope. This performance is 10X a traditional reaction wheel (e.g. a typical 1 Nms reaction wheel offers only 0.05 Nm Torque).

High power efficiency

Each module is using less than 4 W/Nm power efficiency compared to more than 50 W/Nm for traditional wheels.

Test 1
singularity avoidance

Internal CMG gimbal management to avoid singularities providing a spherical momentum envelope.

low micro vibration

5 years lifetime with microvibrations mitigation for  management for high pointing stability missions

Reaction Wheel RW500

High Torque reaction wheel for 35 – 100 kg satellites.

Serving micro satellite missions with a minimum of 5 years lifetime.

High TORQUE / LOW VOLUME
