Revolutionizing space mission design

Navigating the complexities of nanosatellite mission planning and analysis can be daunting. From the intricate technical requirements to the vast array of scientific and engineering disciplines involved, the process often poses significant challenges and demands extensive expertise.
Rapid and data-driven decision-making is crucial during the development process. We assist the space application creators to focus on their main areas to achieve efficient mission planning.​

​We are building a tool to overcome this challenge and make these processes much easier for you during the development lifecycle.

Join us as we pave the way for a new era of accessible and streamlined space mission design.

Radiation analysis

Our radiation analysis services have been used by several companies for LEO and lunar orbits.

These services include the following:

  • Monte Carlo Simulation

  • Sector Analysis

  • Total Ionizing Dose (TID) Assessment

  • Total Non-Ionizing Dose (TNID) Assessment

  • Single Event Effects (SEE) Rates Analysis

  • Compliance with ECSS-E-ST-20-07C Standards

Space Debris Mitigation

We understand the critical importance of responsible space activities and the ever-growing concern surrounding space debris. Our Service aligns with the stringent standards set by the ESA Space Debris Mitigation Requirements [ESSB-ST-U-007 Issue 1] and the “Zero Debris” policy.

SatZone features

 
 

Orbit propagation

SatZone's orbit propagation module is capable of calculating a satellite's orbit from TLE or Kepler elements.
You can define the time range of the calculation, as well as the resolution of the simulation.

Link budget

Analyze the RF and Data-link on your mission orbit. You can calculate RF, Data budgets and optimize your communication. The tool supports UHF, S and X-band communication with multiple coding schemes.  

Radiation analysis

Estimate your satellite exposure for your specific orbit. You can choose between trapped particles models and we provide the total ionizing dose (TID) for the volume of interest in your satellite. We provide an automated solution that calculates electron and proton TID in a matter of minutes, therefore you can optimize your geometry and orbit for radiation protection as needed.

Radiation Analysis

 
  • Monte Carlo Simulation: Employing Geant4 to simulate and analyze the interaction of radiation with various materials and components in space.

  • Sector Analysis: Detailed examination of specific spacecraft sectors to assess and mitigate the impact of radiation on sensitive electronics and materials.

  • Total Ionizing Dose (TID) Assessment: Quantifying the cumulative amount of ionizing radiation absorbed by spacecraft components over time, crucial for long-term missions and sensitive electronics.

  • Total Non-Ionizing Dose (TNID) Assessment: Measuring the cumulative effect of non-ionizing radiation, which can cause displacement damage in semiconductor devices.

  • Single Event Effects (SEE) Rates Analysis: Evaluating the likelihood and potential impact of single-event effects caused by high-energy particles.

  • Compliance with ECSS-E-ST-20-07C Standards: Ensuring that all radiation analysis methods and countermeasures are in line with the latest European Cooperation for Space Standardization guidelines.

 

Radiation Mitigation Strategies

  • Shielding Solutions Design: Developing customized shielding strategies to protect spacecraft from harmful radiation.

  • Component Hardening Recommendations: Advising on the use of radiation-hardened components to improve spacecraft resilience.

  • Orbital Path Analysis for Radiation Optimization: Analyzing and recommending orbital trajectories that minimize radiation exposure.

Space Debris Mitigation Analysis Service

 
 

We understand the critical importance of responsible space activities and the ever-growing concern surrounding space debris. Our Service aligns with the stringent standards set by the ESA Space Debris Mitigation Requirements [ESSB-ST-U-007 Issue 1] and the “Zero Debris” policy.

We are providing preliminary analysis to support the planned compliance and detailed analyses to support the compliance verification. The supported assessments are the collision risk and disposal analysis.

Collision risk assessment

 
  • On-orbit break-up and vulnerability analysis.

  • Preliminary on-orbit collision risk analysis. Statistical assessment of collision. Evaluation of the cumulative collision probability.

  • Calculation of the probability of space debris or meteoroid impact.

Disposal analysis

 
  • Probabilistic assessment of the orbit lifetime of the spacecraft.

  • Assessment of the probability of successful disposal of the spacecraft.

  • Lifetime analysis. Natural orbital decay on LEO.

  • Re-entry casualty risk assessment.
