System Engineers Call – CubeSat Project – CLOSED

As a SE (System Engineer) you will define the overall lifecycle of the system. This point covers not only short-term analysis but future plans. For example, currently, we are at an early stage of the project, doing preliminary design. But we are already thinking about how to perform those called Assembly Integration Verification and Testing Activities, to be done in later project phases.

SunCubes Project Call

The goal of SunCubes Laser Beam project is to study the feasibility of power transmission through the use of laser technology. The final objective is to develop a payload able to transmit power between 2 spacecrafts wirelessly. 

6S CubeSat Project

Designing a CubeSat has always been one of the main focus of the association. After creating a team of BSc PoliMi students, the project of the PoliS pace CubeSat started getting shape.

Thanks to a partnership with Sidereus Space Dynamics, the PoliSpace Cubesat will actually take flight towards real space in the early months of 2023.

Lexicon Project

Lexicon design aims to improve the filtering solutions already adopted in the Apollo mission by reducing the required maintenance and increasing the number of possible applications. The system is based on a closed-cycle, involving an inert fluid coupled with a cyclone filter to collect the dust produced inside a dome accommodating the ISRUmachine. The system’s scalability is allowed by 3D printing almost all the components and assembling them in-situ, thus avoiding the transportation of bulky materials.

Experimental Payload V0

The experimental payload EPv0 is a project of the italian company Sidereus Space Dynamics developed, designed and built with the contribution of PoliSpace. EPv0 aims to characterize through measurements the payload bay of Sidereus’ launcher EOS.

Lexicon Project Call

Lexicon is a flexible and scalable system to confine, separate and collect the lunar dust produced in a closed and controlled environment. Its design aims to improve the filtering solutions already adopted in the Apollo mission by reducing the required maintenance and increasing the number of possible applications.
