To boldly go where no student has gone before!

The portfolio of the TU Wien Space Team also includes CubeSats. These are small satellites that are transported into space and perform a specific experiment there.
Together with the FH Wiener Neustadt, a CubeSat project has already been successfully implemented:

  • Pegasus:
    Our main task in this project was the development of the Power Supply Unit (PSU) and the Board Computer (OBC). The TU Wien Space Team also developed the hardware and software of the base plate with its own camera module, which provides photos from space.

At the moment the TU Wien Space Team is also working on a new CubeSat project:

  • DISCO One:
    The DISCO One project is developing and deploying a technology called Modular Retroreflectors (MRR) designed specifically for micro-satellites that addresses these 2 issues.
