A collaboration between Surrey Satellite Technology and Goonhilly to launch Lunar Communications Pathfinder, a mission to deliver assets into lunar orbit and provide communications services.
Assembly and integration at Surrey's Guildford facilities of three one metre resolution earth observation satellites for the DMC3/TripleSat Constellation.
NovaSAR -S, a technology demonstration mission designed to complement much larger, complex radar satellites with a smaller, lighter and more cost effective platform that delivers Earth Observation Synthetic Aperture Radar imagery day and night and through cloud cover.
NovaSAR-S is a technology demonstration mission that delivers Earth observation Synthetic Aperture Radar imagery, day and night and through cloud cover. The animation shows NovaSAR-S imaging in two of its four modes: ScanSAR and Maritime. SAR visualisation produced from European Space Agency remote sensing data.
This video video was taken in-orbit on 8 July 2014 using an inspection camera on-board ourTechDemoSat-1 satellite, starting about 30 seconds after separation from the launcher. At 6 seconds the Sun appears at the top of the frame as a very bright white flare, before the rotation of the satellite reveals a view of Earth below, of the Pacific Ocean south of French Polynesia. At 25 seconds, the Fregat upper stage of the Soyuz-2 launch vehicle appears as a gold object passing left to right at a distance of approx 60 metres. At 34 seconds a white dot crosses the frame left to right - this is almost certainly one of the other satellites that shared the ride into orbit with TechDemoSat-1.
Video taken in orbit by a small inspection camera on board TechDemoSat-1 (June 2017). The camera is trained on the Antenna Pointing Mechanism, and also captures views of the Earth - this footage shows Greenland, travelling south to Baffin Bay.
