Using Open Source to Disrupt the Small Satellite Industry

Download to read offline

Embracing open source principles, our goal is to develop a 25kg-250kg class, fully open source satellite platform and to make the design readily available to all as a foundation on which new systems can be built.
Presented at the 4th ESA Cubesat Industry Days, June 2019.

KISPESPACESYSTEMSLTD-OpenSourceSatellite©2019 KISPE Limited established in 2016 Programme and Systems Engineering company Electronics, Telecommunications and Space sectors Working with customers on the execution or implementation of their business ideas, from early inception and business planning activities, through the design, manufacture, integration, test and operations Generating and delivering specialist training & development and provision of consultancy services Drawing on significant industry knowledge and experience acquired over thirty years in engineering, programme, strategic, management and leadership roles in several organisations KISPE and operating entities KISPE Space Systems Limited and Applied Space Solutions Limited support clients around the World in the Commercial, Institutional and Government sectors KS-PRS-01031-01KISPESPACESYSTEMSLTD-OpenSourceSatellite©2019
  4. 4. KISPESPACESYSTEMSLTD-OpenSourceSatellite©2019 OSSAT VISION and MISSION Our Vision: To make space more accessible. Our Mission: To stimulate utilisation and exploitation, new applications and services, and to promote responsible and sustainable use of space. Embracing open source principles, our goal is to develop a 25kg-250kg class, fully open source satellite platform and to make the design readily available to all as a foundation on which new systems can be built. • A performant, capable and modular microsatellite platform • A design that can be readily tailored • An approach using COTS parts, processes and tools • A platform that can be upgraded and reconfigured after launch • A solution that can operate with multiple ground station networks • A design available to all Initiating the development and the on-going nurturing of an open source community that uses, contributes to and supports the Open Source Satellite Programme KS-PRS-01031-01
  5. 5. SPACECRAFT MARKET SEGMENTATION Traditional Small Satellites Big satellites in a smaller box Unaffordable in low volumes Accessibility challenge Constellation Microsatellites High optimization Low modularity Exquisite “one-offs” Affordability challenge Difficult to scale down for smaller missions High-volume “cookie cutter” 150kg-250kg Harsh LEO 100kg-250kg LEO Cubesats Difficult to scale up for bigger missions Modular, small payloads Physics gets in the way Low entry barrier but not truly “cost-effective” 1kg-30kg Benign LEO Affordable to build in low volumes Versatile, scalable Robust, resilient in all orbits Accessible to all 25kg-250kg LEO, MEO, GEO + KS-PRS-01031-01

  7. 7. KISPESPACESYSTEMSLTD-OpenSourceSatellite©2019 OSSAT APPROACH Commercial Off The shelf parts COTS design tools MBSE approach Robust architecture Increasing integration with each subsequent variant of the design “Platform on an ASIC” Commoditised platform Radiation-hard Manufacture “On Demand” Increasing physical integration Increasing Functional integration MBSE tool enhancements Low Earth orbit Demanding missions “80% Solution” Harsh Earth Orbits Interplanetary missions “100% Solution” Low Earth Orbit Modest missions “70% Solution” 2023 KS-PRS-01031-01
  8. 8. KISPESPACESYSTEMSLTD-OpenSourceSatellite©2019 OPEN SOURCE SATELLITE BENEFITS • The Platform provides Support: • The Platform is not the MissionFocus on Mission and Applications • Build instructions available to all; teams can build their own platform. • Strategic partners gain early access to designsPlatform design available to all • Costly proprietary design tools create barriers to entry • Tools need to be easy to access and affordable COTS design tools • Build to align with project schedules and quantities • Retain programmatic control Build spacecraft “on-demand” • Platform capability “baked in” • Scalable peripheralsLow Platform & Payload NRE • Comprehensive platform functional architecture envelope • Simple payload and ground interfaces “Plug and Play” interfaces • Stakeholder mission needs drive requirements envelope • Market demands drive roadmap strategyUsers shape requirements • Release Intellectual Property “out into the wild” • Community inputs improve design, ensure platform and process utilityUsers improve design KS-PRS-01031-01
  9. 9. KISPESPACESYSTEMSLTD-OpenSourceSatellite©2019 CUBESAT<->OPEN SOURCE: PARALLELS?https://sites.google.com/a/slu.edu/swartwout/home/cubesat-database The cubesat idea came first and all of the ecosystem elements were developed after KS-PRS-01031-01
  10. 10. KISPESPACESYSTEMSLTD-OpenSourceSatellite©2019 CUBESAT <-> OPEN SOURCE: PARALLELS? Elements of the ecosystem are starting to emerge, we want to unify, accelerate and leverage for larger operational missions KS-PRS-01031-01
  11. 11. KISPESPACESYSTEMSLTD-OpenSourceSatellite©2019 Our Pledge: The provision of a fully open-source microsatellite platform that is available to all. Our Goal: To make all of the open source platform design information freely accessible within one year after launch. GROWING THE COMMUNITY We will be releasing information about the Open Source Satellite design and our activities as we progress through the milestones, from design and development through to launch and mission operations. The Resources that we will be providing for public access include: • Design drawings • Schematics • Parts lists • Board layouts • Software source code • Manufacturing information KS-PRS-01031-01
  12. 12. KISPESPACESYSTEMSLTD-OpenSourceSatellite©2019 Embrace the potential and play a part in the success of the Open Source Satellite Programme We are seeking sponsors and partners to help to accelerate the development of the world’s first open-source microsatellite. We want to develop a community that can make meaningful contributions to our goal to develop a low-cost, highly-capable fully open-source microsatellite that will stimulate new missions, applications and bring the benefits of space to many more people We are planning to share the detailed design data with strategic sponsors and partners, before the information is released to the public. HOW ARE TEAMS GETTING INVOLVED? KS-PRS-01031-01
  13. 13. KISPESPACESYSTEMSLTD-OpenSourceSatellite©2019 CREATING OPEN SOURCE RESOURCES Community and User Forum in development: Learn, share and work together A repository for sharing of articles, resources and design information We will release information on our design and activities as we progress design, development and mission milestones. This will include the design drawings, schematics, parts lists, board layouts, software source code and assembly information. Webinars Community members from around the world can join live interaction events to and download Videos on demand. Resources A library of Resources will be made available to everyone: information to develop open source satellite missions. Opportunities for early access and co-development available for supporters and sponsors Articles Sharing ideas and information is at the heart of everything we do. Our articles discuss the latest developments in the Open Source Satellite programme, consider industry news, and invite stakeholder conversations. KS-PRS-01031-01
