Take a look of project's partnership.
FAST-PSAT (FAST Plastic SATellite) is a project created by PicoSaTs, an Innovative Start-up company. The aim is define a razor-and-blade business model to launch on the market a new solution for building small satellites by using a promising plastic polymer and 3-D manufacturing technique, with a modularity design, a “Lego® brick” concept.â€¨ This solution would significantly improve access to space to many players, particularly small companies and research institutes, and it would solve technical, operational, social and economic issues that characterize the design phase and development process of current customised small satellite production, both in civilian and military applications. Over the last decade more than one hundred small satellites have been launched; this number will tremendously increase in the next future, with over 400 small satellites already in 2016. FAST-PSAT aims at providing the means to get independency in satellite mechanical manufacturing and to grant accessibility and adaptability of space industry, in the light of a remarkable interest in small space programs, both in the scientific and industrial field. The availability of a modular, non-metallic bus that can host a variety of payloads, primarily devoted to Earth observations and Remote Sensing, provides EU-wide means for a low-cost access to space, and meets the requirements for coping with the global challenges: effective observations and communications from space for monitoring natural hazards, agricultural aspects and security ones at low-cost and with low environmental impact upon re-entry. The modularity concept can be even extended to larger structures to simplify and standardise satellite production and further enhance the economies of scale. With FAST-PSAT Europe can become the worldwide leader of in space usage of plastic materials manufactured using fast prototyping techniques.
Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "FAST-PSAT" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
