It's Getting Real Now...!!!
So, Gravitec Inc is now in fully built mode. Here's a 2U CubeSat provided by our friends in Gran System Taiwan to allow us to better fit the upcoming SFE test thruster for the Demo-1 orbital flight. Yes, that is a real 2U CubeSat, not a mockup like we normally use. While the mockups are great models to work with, nothing beats the real deal.
Demo-1 is on track, and we hope to launch into orbit sometime in 2023. Unlike this 2U CubeSat, Demo-1 will most likely be a 3U CubeSat.
Currently we are redesigning the power supply, power conditioning and thruster to make it as small and as efficient as possible.
More posts to follow as things evolve. Stay tuned.
