Thermal and power budgets analysis. Orbit simulations and comm planning.


In order to design a space mission there are many elements that should be taken into account.

GAUSS Srl offers consultancy for mission analysis to clients that intend to build a satellite (micro, pico or nano) or a satellite constellation.

A feasibility study allows us to define the mission’s planification, to make a preliminary assessment of its costs and to analyze risks at systems and subsystems levels.

Phases involved in a space mission planning

  • Preliminary mission analysis;
  • Simulation of performances, sizes, power, payload etc..;
  • Reliable planning of the system components;
  • Applicability tests (AIT Assembly Integration and Tests activities analysis);
  • In orbit phase (first acquisition, health check, normal operations);
  • After the mission, create a report with all relevant data, in order to sum up the output and learn best practices.

A preliminary mission analysis would include

  • Feasibility study;
  • Preliminary Power, Thermal, Mass and Link budgets;
  • OBDH preliminary requirements, including storage analysis, command and control analysis;
  • Preliminary 3D model for internal disposition of the different elements of the satellite and masses;
  • Preliminary in orbit mission planning;
  • Identification and definition of the critical points of the mission for risk mitigation;
  • Initial project plan definition;
  • Space Debris Analysis.
