Research and Development on Small Satellites

Space cannot be understood without research. We are committed to the development of new solutions and products since our early years as team. Proof of our commitment and efficiency in the research and development are the projects carry out and completed successfully.

New technological developments that reduce the costs of using space-based applications and collaborations among local, national, regional and international stakeholders can potentially increase the uptake of applications.

We develop research projects internally or in collaboration with other companies and institutions. Some of them have received recognition from public entities, which have participated in their financing.
