The CSUM has all the technical resources required to complete an End-to-End mission, from preliminary stages to implementation, including functional and environmental testing.
As a technical hub, the CSUM can make its facilities available as part of its service provision.
GROUND STATIONS (UHF/VHF RADIOHAM, UHF/UHF RADIOHAM SDR, S-BAND SAFRAN DATA SYSTEMS)
Antennas associated with the three transmitting/receiving stations:
• Yagi antennas on VHF/UHF tower
• Yagi antenna on UHF tripod (SDR)
• Commercial S-band 2.4m dish antenna
The ground segment of the CSUM is equipped with a complete set of components to monitor and operate our satellites.
The ground segment has two UHF radio stations, one of which was wholly developed by the CSUM team and can transmit signals at more than 100 W transmission power. It also includes VHF downlink and uplink capabilities.
Recently, CSUM has also installed a fully operational S-band ground station with the most up-to-date equipment used to track and communicate with satellites at over 5 Mbps.
• ICOM-9100 VHF/UHF (amateur radio bands)
• SDR (Software Define Radio) UHF (amateur radio bands)
• Commercial S-band
ASSEMBLY, INTEGRATION AND FUNCTION TESTING SUITE
The clean room of the CSUM allows AIT (assembly, integration and testing) activities to be conducted on CubeSats in a controlled environment. Three flight models have been assembled and tested in recent years in the clean room.
