Aliena and NuSpace work on Nanosat Avionics for Autonomous Constellations

Aliena and NuSpace announced collaboration plans to build and demonstrate an integrated avionics suite. The avionic suite will address the demands in the nanosatellite market for constellation management systems.

Two local Singapore space companies will work together to develop and commercialize an integrated space avionics solution; to address the upcoming demand for constellation management systems. The collaboration would see both companies working together through deep collaboration and partnerships in commissioning a 3U nanosatellite that would demonstrate autonomous orbit control maneuvers, and is slated to be launched in Q1 2021. This would be a precursor to realizing an autonomous constellation management solution.

Aliena is a spin-off from Nanyang Technical University (NTU) that develops solutions for enhanced orbit maneuver through the provision of a suite of propulsion systems.

NuSpace is a spin-off from the National University of Singapore (NUS), founded by Mr Ng Zhen Ning (Co-founder & CEO) and Dr Luo Sha (Co-founder), who are researchers at the NUS Faculty of Engineering. NuSpace’s vision is to provide affordable global loT (Internet of Things) connectivity by launching a constellation of IoT enabling nanosatellites.
