TechnoSat (Tubsat 12)

TechnoSat [TU Berlin]

TechnoSat is a nanosatellite project of the Technical University of Berlin. The main objective of TechnoSat is the demonstration and on orbit verification of newley developed satellite components.

Secondary mission is the evaluation of the adaptive nanosatellite bus TUBiX20 (TU Berlin inovative neXt generation 20 kg nanosatellite plattform), which was developed on the experiences gained by the BeeSat 1 and BeeSat 2 CubeSat missions. TechnoSat has a launch mass of 18 kg and measures 30 cm × 45 cm × 45 cm.

TechnoSat carries following components for orbital verification:

  • camera
  • fluiddynamic actuator
  • S-Band transmitter HISPICO
  • Laser-retroreflectors
  • Solar Generator Impact Detector (SOLID)
  • star tracker STELLA
  • reaction wheel system

TechnoSat also serves as a pathfinder for the TUBIN mission.
