BEYOND - A highly versatile satellite bus

The MOVE-BEYOND satellite platform shall serve as baseline for the next satellites built at the Chair of Astronautics and - in case the systems get so far - be the platform for any missions of the origins-excellence cluster. Apart from the technical goal of developing one satellite platform that shall fly on at least two and up to six missions and host a variety of payloads that are not yet defined or selected, the project’s main purpose is the hands-on education of students
in spacecraft design, qualification, testing and operation.
