PICOSATS

Description

PICOSATS innovation consists in the development and commercialisation of a new line of telecommunication systems for small satellites.
Small satellites can become proper commercial systems to serve various telecommunication applications, at significantly lower costs and with several economic, social and market benefits. In this context, PICOSATS will contribute to a safer and more democratic society, speeding-up daily life space services: data exchange, widespread internet connectivity, Internet-of-Things, autonomous guided vehicle systems, Earth Observation, and environment hazard monitoring.
The first product by PICOSATS, RADIOSAT, is a transceiver currently at TRL 7, which is developed under the supervision of the European Space Agency – ESA, according to unique features:
• Breakthrough performance in terms of high data rate, low power consumption and extreme size miniaturisation.
• Widespread commercialisation thanks to a modular and frequency-customisable design, achieved by cheap and widely available commercial-off-the-shelf components, in a standard plug-and-play form factor.

Founded in 2014, PICOSATS aims to make space accessible and affordable. Based in Area Science Park, PICOSATS aspires to an interconnected world where people can use space resources to improve the community life in a sustainable way. The company is currently working on a new telecommunication system that makes high-speed data transmission possible: RADIOSAT, a miniaturised Ka band transceiver designed for CubeSats and small satellites with the support of the European Space Agency. PICOSATS, unlike the few competitors on the market, is developing a unique, state-of-the-art solution that allows the receiver and transmitter to be managed separately.
