Posted 6 October 2017 · Add Comment

Cobham's products and services contributed to the successful deployment this summer of the 'Flying Laptop' Satellite developed at the Institute of Space Systems (IRS) at the University of Stuttgart in Germany.



Cobham’s Standard Products, Single Board Computer and custom developed FPGA were critical contributors to the design of the 'Flying Laptop'. 

The satellite programme came to fruition through various German funding partners, in partnership with several industry leaders, including Cobham Gaisler and Cobham Semiconductor Solutions.

The objectives of the 110kg class 'Flying Laptop' satellite, in addition to scientific earth surveillance, are the test and verification of new technologies, including a new on-board computer system, a new power management system designed by Airbus Defense & Space, and an innovative unfolding mechanism for the solar panels, as well as diverse new payload components.
