Small Satellites – New Space

Learn in detail how Alter Technology works the NEW SPACE through the SMALL SATELLITES

New Space has become a space revolution within the market, bringing new challenges, where Small Sats revolutionize how space is used. Small Sats are spacecraft with a mass of less than 500 kg, although we can find some satellites with a lower threshold.  

They fall into three categories: nanosatellites with a mass of 1 to 10 kg, microsatellites with 10 to 100 kg, and minisatellites with a mass between 100-500 kg. 

CubeSats are the only ones with a more clearly defined standard. A CubeSat consists of units: a unit is a 10x10x10 cm cube. The CubeSat is then determined by the number of units, such as 6U or six units. 

ALTER TECHNOLOGY is a certifying entity in space components and equipment, including New Space projects.

We introduce you to our portfolio of equipment-level test activities that are carried out to put any SMALL SATELLITE into orbit, improving your time to market and at a lower cost, contributing to the cost-effectiveness of the manufacturing process.
