The CubeSat Developers Workshop (CDW) is back with plenty of news for 2023. This industry conference, organised by California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) in San Luis Obispo, brings together every year more than 600 professionals and students involved in the small satellite industry and in the development and operation of satellites under the CubeSat standard.
Alén Space, as in previous editions, has had a commercial representation focused on reconnecting and meeting face to face with several customers and partners to discuss new opportunities for collaboration on future projects and missions.
Throughout the three days of this event, the hottest topics and developments in the nanosatellite sector were discussed, but there was also occasion for sharing the knowledge and experiences of the researchers and engineers in attendance.
The final day of CDW focused on various presentations of corporate and institutional views on specific issues, particularly those related to satellite communications.
During the morning session there were several slide shows, among them the electronics area manager of Alén Space, Aarón Nercellas, who gave an overview of the entire history of the small satellite company and its main services, emphasizing its specialty in the provision of software defined radios (SDRs) for different communications applications.
Apart from highlighting the SDR developed by Alén Space, TOTEM, Aarón Nercellas also had the opportunity to present the advantages of the TREVO platform, one of the company’s latest products.
In his own words, “progress in the space sector is advancing by leaps and bounds, and therefore the objectives of space missions are becoming more and more ambitious. We have adapted our technology to these changes demanded by the sector, taking advantage of the experience and know-how accumulated over all these years”.
During this session, the capabilities of this solution were detailed about its configurable design and the ease with which users of the product can select the number of systems on chip (SoCs) and transceivers as required by the satellite mission in question.
Finally, he explained about the current projects being worked on with this modular subsystem, such as the SATMAR project with Egatel to digitise maritime communications with the VDES standard.
