About Alén Space
Alén Space is a New Space company focused on the development of missions based on Nanosatellites as well as products and services related to them. Our mission is to help our clients to develop their business plan designing, manufacturing and operating satellites in order to execute the application they need.
While Alén Space is a new company, our team has been involved in several complete nanosatellite missions, from specification to delivery, during the last 15 years. Alén Space technical team is composed of systems engineers, electronic engineers, AIV engineers, software and operations engineers and project managers; with a large experience on IOD, communication, commercial and scientific missions, with private and public institutions such as the European Space Agency.
Alén Space’s value proposition resides in the flexibility and expertise of our team. We utilize our design and testing methodologies, which allow the use of components from various suppliers, to create the most suitable platform for the requested mission. During more than a decade, all our nanosatellites missions have been fully designed in-house, following the same multi-provider approach, resulting on a 100% success rate in orbit, for all launched missions.
At Alén Space, quality and flexibility in the design, manufacturing and testing are hallmarks of the company. The quality of the process is achieved through meticulous testing and verification processes, keeping traceability of all the executed activities. The flexibility is achieved thanks to the proximity relationship with our clients and to our supplier agnostic approach. This relationship aims not only at easing the communication process, but also at allowing our commercial clients to take an important role on the design aspects. In this line, we design the most flexible spacecraft platforms, to accommodate subsystem suppliers’ changes without heavily impacting the overall mission. Our systems and AIV engineers work closely with the client, in order to take decisions and involve them in the process.
Our team has enhanced a work method that applies the strict quality standards set by the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Cooperation for Space Standardization (ECSS). All of our management, system engineering and AIV processes are based on those standards.
Quality, Flexibility, Scalability, Proximity, Expertise and Success define all Alén Space values.
