Blog – Join SFL at the Virtual SmallSat 2020
The Small Satellite Conference traditionally held in Logan, Utah, will be a virtual event this year. In keeping with the times, the theme will be “Virtually Amazing.” We hope you will join SFL at our virtual trade show booth and two presentations. This year’s SmallSat will be free of charge and held August 1-6 online. Read the full article…
Blog – Space Flight Laboratory Announces New Line of Cost-Effective CubeSats to Expand its Current Satellite Offerings
Space Flight Laboratory (SFL), a developer of microspace missions for 22 years, has announced a new line of high-performance, low-cost CubeSat buses. The 3U (“THUNDER”), 6U (“SPARTAN”) and 12U/16U (“JAEGER”) CubeSats complement SFL’s legacy suite of space-heritage nano- and microsatellites, fulfilling mission size requirements from 3 kg to 500 kg.
Blog – AISSat-1 Maritime Vessel Tracking Nanosat Celebrates 10th Anniversary
AISSat-1 is a 7-kilogram, 20cm-cube nanosatellite constructed by SFL for the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI) and the Norwegian Space Centre (NSC).
Blog – SFL Comprehensive Microspace Mission Development Includes Ground Segment
Throughout our 22-year history at SFL, we have taken great pride in our ability to deliver end-to-end microspace missions for our clients.
Blog – Autonomous Formation Flying Enables Multi-Satellite Applications – Part 2
SFL was the first microspace company to develop and integrate the hardware systems and software algorithms that make autonomous formation flying a reality for micro- and nanosatellites at costs low enough to support commercial applications.
Blog – Autonomous Formation Flying Enables Multi-Satellite Applications – Part 1
Autonomous formation flying enables multiple satellites to work together and, in some cases, effectively perform functions of a larger satellite, or perform missions that cannot be accomplished with a single satellite.
Blog – What’s Under Development at SFL? Atmospheric Monitoring Missions
One of the first microsatellite challenges we addressed more than 20 years ago was the issue of attitude control. Because of lower mass, smaller satellites are impacted more severely than larger-mass satellites by forces acting upon them in orbit.
Blog – What’s Under Development at SFL? Ship Tracking and Remote Sensing Missions
Two notable missions now ready for launch are a sixth satellite for Norway and the first ever satellite for Slovenia.
