SSTL 300

Example Configurations:

HIGH RESOLUTION EO
MEDIUM RESOLUTION EO

SSTL HIGH LEORuggedized for higher radiation LEO orbits

    • Based on the SSTL 300 avionics, the SSTL High LEO platform uses additional shielding on heritage flight qualified COTS avionics to provide improved reliability in harsher radiation environments, as experienced in orbits higher than 800 km.
    • Designed as a high delta-V class platform, supporting a range of launch options and operational strategies whilst remaining compatible with de-orbit regulations at end-of-life.
    • With demonstrated ability to be delivered rapidly for a telecommunications demonstration mission, the platform is optimised for communications pathfinder and bring into use missions.
