Space Advisory Company Products

 

The Space Advisory Company team has contributed in leading roles on a number of South African and international satellite missions. The core of the experience dates back to the South African technology demonstration satellites and the optical payloads on the satellites Sunsat and Sumbandilasat.

Our experienced team has since applied their skills in support of a number of international operational small satellite missions that are based on a number of different technology bases.

Amongst the latest project being worked on is the new South African operational earth observation satellite and the recently launched nSight-1 nanosatellite.

Satellites:

100

100

SCS100 is a lightweight high performance microsatellite that provides 1m resolution panchromatic and 4m resolution multispectral push-broom imaging.

250

250

The SCS-250 High-Resolution optical satellite imaging system optimally addresses the general requirements of cost-effective high-resolution imaging.

450

450

SCS450 is a very high resolution Electro-Optical imaging satellite solution that will satisfy the demanding needs of current and future earth observation missions.

Dragonsar

DRAGONSAR

DragonSAR is a novel modular Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellite solution in collaboration with SSBV that can satisfy the demanding needs of current and future earth observation missions.

Falconeye

FALCONSAR

FalconSAR is the lean and compact variant of the DragonSAR. Making use of only a single set of antenna panels, the weight is drastically reduced with the benefit of a reduction in volume.

Phoenix_opt

PHOENIX-20 HS

The Phoenix-20 Hyperspectral (HS) satellite imaging system optimally addresses the general requirements of spectral identification (spectral fingerprinting) through global coverage and reducing the total cost of ownership.

μSTAR

uSTAR

The μSTAR satellite system is a lightweight, novel radar imaging satellite designed for constellation in C-band. This system will enable an all-weather day/night earth observation satellite capability anywhere on the globe.

Payloads:

Gecko

GECKO IMAGER

The Gecko imager is an easy-to-integrate imaging solution for your CubeSat mission. A customizable high performance mass storage unit is integrated into the compact design.

Chameleon

CHAMELEON

The Chameleon camera consists of high performance optics, image plane, control electronics and an integrated high speed buffer. The whole unit fits within a 10x10x20 cm envelope, making the Chameleon camera an ideal payload for small microsatellites and larger CubeSats.

Monitor Imager

MONITOR IMAGER

The Monitor imager offers impressive imaging capability in a small package by using advanced detectors, optics and high-speed data capturingImage data is captured directly to the integrated mass storage, from where it may be streamed to an on-board computer and downlinked at a data rate that can be conveniently defined by the end user.

Dragonsar

IGUANA

DragonSAR is a novel modular Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellite solution in collaboration with SSBV that can satisfy the demanding needs of current and future earth observation missions.
