Small Satellites Go Viral! - Solenix at the 4S Symposium

02 June 2016

From 30 May to 03 June the 4S Symposium 2016 is taking place in beautiful Valletta in Malta. Surrounded by impressive architecture and Mediterranean landscapes, the symposium jointly organised by CNES and ESA, focusses on Small Satellites Systems and Services. Besides this year's special topic on "Small Satellites Go Viral", the conference covers technical sessions in satellite technology, applications, mission concept and systems.

This year Solenix is doubly present in the conference: with a published paper and its corresponding poster, and a booth on the exhibitors area. Our paper raises the awareness of thinking early in the mission concept about the control system of a small satellite, in order to avoid costly custom developments with higher risks and uncertain performance. As an alternative, we propose to use standard systems that have already been tailored to the needs of small satellite missions, such as our mission control system Elveti. You can have a look at our poster here.


In our booth you could find information and a live demo of our electronic logbook solution, Überlog, as well as details of Elveti. Thank you to our visitors for the interesting and inspiring talks. We look forward to further exchanges after the symposium.
