Educational and research project with multiple payloads including fuel cell system.


Research project aimed to the development, construction and validation of a pico-satellite based on CubeSat standard from design phase to Flight Model (FM) phase. “Cepheus” pico-satellite embeds various experimental payloads, namely: fuel cell system, star tracker with MEMS (MicroElectroMecanical System) technology and secondary communications link. This way, the project faces some of the main challenges of current micro space vehicles: energy storage, navigation sensor cost, and communication link energy consumption.
