new space philosophy
German Orbital Systems platforms are based on the “new space” philosophy, maximizing the utilization of building block system of COTS components. Depending on the requirements of the customer and payloads, corresponding platform subsystems are selected from the German Orbital Systems portfolio or procured from a network of partner companies.
German Orbital Systems platform design approach guarantees the maximum value for the customer within the boundary conditions of a shared satellite mission and its optimal costs.

Software defined core
Digitally controlled converters and switches in redundant configurations
Accommodation of 20 small PCB-based payloads up to a 4U payload block
Autonomous Scheduler optimizes the payload duty cycle to deliver maximum possible value for each payload
Flexible payload handling
Each payload has access to a dedicated Interface Controller chip which can run user defined scripts
Double deployable solar panels, supplementary attitude sensors
This agile approach makes it possible to execute satellite
missions within a very short period;
within 6 months from contract signature, the satellite can be ready for launch.

meet the requirements of all customers
German Orbital Systems has never been just “another” CubeSat manufacturer. From the very beginning we have focused on standardizing and harmonizing our internal processes instead of attempting to build multifunctional general-purpose hard- and software to meet the requirements of all potential customers at once. As a consequence, our systems remain adaptable and can be easily tailored to specific customer requirements even if those change during the project.
- We focus on customers, who are envisioning their first tech demo or aim to launch a small constellation.
- We are an ideal match for clients, who have novel, non-standard payloads and pursue innovative and unusual business ideas. Our approach allows us to offer tailored solutions at standard product costs.
- We help our customers to de-risk the first steps on the way to commercial viability and to accelerate their progress.
10 users 1 bus
Sharing the resources of the 3U CubeSat between up to 10 users reduces the costs by an order of magnitude. The main purpose of the 3U GROOVE platform is to be a Proof-of-Concept in order to attract potential customers and to demonstrate feasibility while collecting valuable feedback for subsequent improvements.
experience based services
As a consequence, our turnkey missions consist of all required segments. We offer special bundles, including space and launch segment.
