Demonstrate structure that can store energy and ultra-broadband radio that does not require internal cabling. Using a fully wireless data bus for all subsystems


Besides education, the goal of the InnoCube mission is technology demonstration.

Two innovative technologies, Skith and Wall#E.

Wall#E (Fiber Reinforced Spacecraft Walls for Energy Storage) is a special fibre-reinforced structure that can store electrical energy and at the same time can be used as the supporting structure of the satellite. Wall#E was developed in Braunschweig at the Institute of Space Systems. 

The wireless satellite infrastructure Skith (Skip the harness) originates from Würzburg. It eliminates the internal cabling of the satellite components by enabling data transmission with ultra-broadband radio.

The Wall#E and Skith technologies have emerged as winners of the DLR INNOspace Masters competitions in 2016 and 2017 respectively. Their development was supported in separate projects by DLR Space Agency with funding from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. The INNOcube project started April 1, 2020.
