Creotech Instruments S.A., a company listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange’s NewConnect market, one of Poland’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of space technologies to the global market, has completed the development of HyperSat, its universal satellite platform standard. The company is now poised to transition to the next phase involving placing the first EagleEye microsatellite based on the HyperSat standard in orbit by the end of 2023, meaning it can start testing in real operational environments. The completion of the project marks an important milestone in Creotech’s effort to bring its microsatellites to a market worth USD 11 bn.
Renaissance is Creotech Instruments’ flagship project aiming to build and develop the innovative HyperSat microsatellite platform designed for time and cost-effective space missions, particularly for satellite constellations. The platform was built for scalability and speed of integration, both highly desirable qualities in the dynamic market of new satellite services.
“The conclusion of HyperSat’s development phase is a crucial step for Creotech as it opens up possibilities for the commercial launch of microsatellites based on this standard. We reaffirm our plans to deploy the first HyperSat-based EagleEye microsatellite to space by the end of 2023. This will mean that we have reached Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 9 enabling the platform to be launched commercially,” says Grzegorz Brona, President of the Management Board of Creotech Instruments S.A.
The National Center for Research and Development has already notified the company that the project has been approved and settled. The entire undertaking was carried over a 4-year cycle with eligible expenditures totaling PLN 15.2m.
The project involved testing and developing TRL 6 and 7 technology, thus substantially reducing development risk to the company’s key microsatellite product line.
“In terms of electronics, we have developed all assumed subsystems, including the onboard computer, power supply and communications. The platform’s main advantages are its modularity and reproducibility. Additionally, it can be freely configured using ready modules and larger form factor instruments rendering the HSN’s field of application significantly bigger,” adds Grzegorz Brona.
