Sky and Space Global signs system simulator contract for its nanosatellites

The company is aiming for circa 200 nanosatellites in orbits by 2020.
The project will be delivered over the next 12 months

Sky and Space Global Ltd (ASX:SAS) has contracted SCISYS PLC (LON:SSY) to deliver a system simulator for the company’s ‘Pearls’ constellation of nanosatellites.

The Pearls constellation mission is expected to have circa 200 autonomous narrowband communication nanosatellites in orbits by 2020, giving equatorial coverage of the Earth.

This constellation of nanosatellites is aimed at creating a global affordable communication network for voice, data and instant messaging for over 3 billion people currently without mobile coverage.

SCISYS is a software company based in the UK and Germany and is a supplier of software systems and support services to the space, government, defence, and media & broadcast sectors.

Under the new contract, SCISYS will develop a ‘Pearls’ Constellation System Simulator, which will provide an accurate representation of the constellation, its communication infrastructure, customer activity and mission operations.

The simulator is designed as a high-fidelity, configurable, scalable and portable solution, which also integrates the network management and fuel consumption optimisation algorithms.

Importantly, this data will enable Sky and Space to fine tune operations quickly and effectively, maximising service provision, and minimising operational costs and time to service.

The project will be delivered over the next 12 months.
