ISISpace – Innovative Solutions in Space was founded on January 6th, 2006 as a spin-off from the Delfi-C3 nanosatellite project of the Delft University of Technology and is one of the leading companies in the fast-growing small satellite market. ISISpace employs over 100 specialist employees operating from its main site in Delft, the Netherlands, and a development branch office in Somerset West, South Africa. The company primarily focuses on CubeSats from the range of 1U-16U - providing high-value, cost-effective space solutions by applying innovative technologies.
ISISpace is vertically integrated and combines research, design, manufacturing, testing, launch, and operations of small spacecraft in a single organization. This allows the company to accommodate customer’s specific requirements, control quality and leverage core competencies to deliver flight hardware on a short schedule.
The company’s core competencies lie in the application of space systems engineering in combination with an expertise in the following technical areas: radiofrequency systems and payloads, deployable systems and hold-down and release mechanisms, attitude determination systems, and embedded systems (incl. sensor networks).
ISISpace is involved in various national and international technology research programs related to miniaturization, interfacing and small satellites. Together with suppliers and partners, ISISpace supports academic, commercial and governmental customers from all over the globe.
ROLE IN ORU-BOAS:
In this project, ISISPACE is responsible for selecting the components that should cover the identified use cases. They will contribute to the definition of the CubeSat-based ORU-BOAS platform, giving advice for selecting and procuring some of the components (mainly structure, thermal, and power subsystems). They will also be responsible for designing, manufacturing, and testing the high energy/power storage payload that will be integrated into the ORU-BOAS prototype.
