Sky and Space Global Completes Satellite Review for Remote Areas Service
Monday, October 29, 2018 | Comments

Sky and Space Global completed the critical design review (CDR) of its Pearls satellites, and the nano-satellites have progressed to assembly and integration. GomSpace, a European based contractor specializing in the construction and testing of bespoke nano-satellites, conducted the CDR.

The company aims to provide reliable and affordable connectivity services to people and businesses in remote geographies.

The CDR assesses all technical components including schedule, overall design, altitude control performance and system budgets to ensure each part is of the highest quality and meets the required standard to progress to the construction phase.

The review concluded that the design presented by GomSpace to SAS complies with the requirements, and the Pearls can progress to assembly and integration, also to be completed by GomSpace. Assembly and integration is scheduled to commence immediately, and construction of the first batch of Pearls is expected to complete on time for the launch.

Once construction and integration are complete, the nano-satellites will then pass through various other final hardware, software and technical assessments and testing, including a final acceptance test before launch. “Positive results from the CDR validate our technology, support our strategy and reaffirm our goal of providing communications technology to remote geographical locations,” said Meir Moalem, co-founder, managing director and CEO. “The construction process phase has begun, and I look forward to updating the market once this is completed.”
