EDUCATION – TECHNOLOGY DEMONSTRATION – NANOSATELLITE BUS ADVANCEMENT

The Delfi-n3Xt is a nanosatellite project of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and successor to the succesful Delfi-C3 mission. The objectives are hands-on education on a real space project, technology demonstration and advancement of a nanosatellite bus. A large participation of between 50 and 80 students in total, in the scope of their thesis and/or internship, is anticipated. Although it has the same outer dimensions as Delfi-C3, the spacecraft bus will be advanced with three-axis attitude control, energy storage for eclipse operation, a high speed data downlink and better overall performance on all other subsystems. It also comprises (at least five) innovative technologies from the the Dutch space sector for technology demonstration: a multifunctional particle spectrometer, a micro­pro­pulsion system, an improved communications platform, micro sun sensors, amorphous silicon solar cells and a radiation tollerant implementation for low-cost flash data storage.
