WORLD'S FIRST VLEO CUBESAT
READY TO CONQUER VLEO SPACE
Captis Space Systems aims to design a CubeSat system for Very Low Earth Orbit. This is a logical continuation of the previous development: from large satellites to small CubeSats – from Low Earth Orbit to Very Low Earth Orbit.
The tailored satellite buses are versatile, cost-efficient, and fast to deploy and enable the customer to carry his payload in VLEO.
In contrast to conventional satellites, however, some technical modifications have to be applied for this purpose:
Idea Nov 2021The initial idea was born: to design satellites for the VLEO.
New Member Otc 2022The founding team gets with Max a new member in the Captis crew.
Prototyping Jan 2023After Captis was able to acquire two grants in 2022, the construction of the prototype could start in January. The team has grown by 3 additional members.
highly responsive attitude control allows us to keep our desired orientation
shields the satellite from impacting atmospheric particles
allows cheap launches with rideshare launch providers
