Explore Talks on "Design for Extreme Situations" - D-Orbit: Made for space

  1. 1. D-ORBIT: Made for Space Explore Talks on "Design for Extreme Situations” 21-04-2016
  2. 2. D-ORBIT IN BRIEF MISSION: A CLEAN AND SAFE ACCESS TO SPACE D-Orbit is focused on stopping the systematic increase of concentration of uncontrolled objects in space, promoting a sustainable access to Space and adding a fourth dimension to the common notion of sustainability: Earth, Air, Sea and Space. We are a satellite systems company that designs and develops devices to maximize spacecraft life and value, providing efficient decommissioning of both satellites and launcher bodies
  3. 3. The SPACE DEBRIS Problem
  4. 4. D-ORBIT DECOMMISSONING DEVICE (D3) SAFE Complaint with the major safety standard and requirement NASA, ESA and MIL-STD; FLEXIBLE Compact design, easier to be integrated in satellite system and customizable to customer’s need; AUTONOMOUS: Power and telemetry-independent from the host satellite during the decommissioning maneuver; RELIABLE All the most sensible subsystems have already reached space qualification.
  5. 5. D-SAT MISSION: D3 IN ORBIT DEMONSTRATION D-SAT WILL BE THE FIRST SATELLITE TO BE REMOVED IN A QUICK, SAFE AND CONTROLLED WAY
  6. 6. D-SAT IN NUMBERS 500 km 2 months <30 minutes 30 N 165 E Orbital Attitude Mission Duration Decommissioning Time Disposal Area D-SAT is designed for a 500 km altitude, but the Decommissioning System’s Solid Propellant Motor allows for decommissioning up to 650 km, covering most of the orbits used by nanosatellites D-SAT will orbit Earth for up to two months, performing experiments, radio outreach and technology test, in preparation for decommissioning The complete decommissioning maneuver phase is performed in less than half-hour versus the months required for a natural decay Thanks to the total control over the orbit maneuver, the debris disposal area can be accurately selected, a feature beyond the capacity of any passive system
  7. 7. D-SAT MISSION: D3 IN ORBIT DEMONSTRATION
  8. 8. DESIGNING FOR EXTREME CONDITIONS • Survive the launch • Space Vacuum • Thermal Problem • Space Radiation • No Maintainability • Absence of gravity
