MECANO ID is “exhibiting” a new, smallsat deployer at the SmallSat Conference, selecting this event to present their world of their new EOS (Ejection Of Satellite) deployer for smallsats.
The EOS deployment system’s first goal is to carefully carry the smallsat during the launch. As soon as the required altitude has been reached, EOS will eject the smallsat to its designated orbit with high stability.
EOS spent the last year under development by MECANO ID with the support of French Space Agency (CNES) and NewSpace Factory (NSF). The system has been developed to support any worldwide launchers and any satellites from 20 to 60 kg with a set of unique advantages.
Based on more than 20 years of collaboration, the CNES has selected to support MECANO ID in the EOS development, which is a crucial link between satellite and launcher. This key support is due to CNES unique dual know-how as much in launcher systems as in orbital systems.
The unique MECANO ID in-house know-how in engineering, composite manufacturing, and environmental testing brings high flexibility to its customers. MECANO ID can provide services and expertise as well as prime contracting that is fully committed to superior results. In the field of smallsats, the company traditionally supports satellites providers in mechanical and thermal architectures, engineering and space qualification. EOS is the first MECANO ID product specifically dedicated to smallsats market.
All stakeholders are invited to discover the EOS capabilities at the Small Satellite Conference.
“We are proud to participate to this 33rd Annual Conference on Small Satellites and to exhibit EOS, the very first creation of our Deployment Systems Product Line. EOS encloses a lot of our knowledge from 25 years of experience in designing, sizing and qualifying space structure,” said Stéphane Galinier, Business Development Manager of the company.
“EOS system combines very low mass (less than 4 kg), predictable mechanical levels, very low spin at ejection and 5 free external faces allowing satellite appendixes such as sensors or antennas,” added Didier Zely, Manager of the Deployment Systems Product Line.
