We are proud to announce that we have become a part of the scientific project of KRAKSat Space Systems! This is a huge step in science, on which students of AGH University of Science and Technology and Jagiellonian University in Cracow are working.
• In a few months, KRAKSAT will become the fifth Polish satellite in the nearest space.
• KRAKSAT is one of the first Cubesat satellites in Poland and the first in the world which will use ferrofluid, i.e. a magnetic liquid, to control the orientation.
• In April 2019 it will board the International Space Station, from where it will be thrown into space at an altitude of about 400 km.
As part of our participation in the project, we have manufactured three parts of the 7075/PA9 aluminium satellite in our Kraków machine park: the FKZ housing, the FKZ lid and the FKZ bracket (FKZ - ferrofluid flywheel), which were positively tested yesterday and officially became elements of the KRAKSAT! Our LED Labs Photometry Laboratory supports the project by providing thermal imaging cameras, which are used by students to test individual elements of the satellite.
We are looking forward to the developments and we will inform you about the fate of the expedition!
Delivery in the USA/Canada is priced individually. Please place an order and we will contact you shortly.
