COMET ha finalizado el proyecto REF-FLEX en colaboración con las empresas AIRBUS DS y PROSIX, realizado con el objetivo de desarrollar un nuevo concepto de reflector espacial compacto y autodesplegable, junto con un brazo igualmente autodesplegable, compuesto de láminas finas de fibra de carbono, que minimizan el peso y el volumen del sistema, a la vez que maximizan su precisión y estabilidad, enfocado al exigente mercado espacial.

Durante el proyecto, se han realizado las tareas de acomodación, diseño y análisis del reflector, así como la caracterización de los materiales a emplear, y la fabricación, medición, ensayo y correlación de diversos prototipos enfocados a la calificación posterior del producto.

Con un presupuesto total de 260.138€, el proyecto se encuentra
cofinanciado por el Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional (FEDER) y el Centro para el Desarrollo Tecnológico Industrial (CDTI) con una ayuda de 221.117,30€.

COMET has just been awarded with the ESA project “Deployable Reflector Antenna for Cubesat Missions”. The objective of the activity is to demonstrate large (between 1 to 3 meters diameter) offset-fed antenna reflector concepts for small/cube satellites suitable for missions up to Ka-band. A reflector breadboard will be manufactured and tested to demonstrate the deployable reflector concept and its critical functions. 

The concept developed by COMET is extremely compact and accurate. It is scalable and modular, so offset-fed reflectors between 1 and 3 meters can be developed and accommodated in cubesat and small satellites, with the following characteristics:

COMET is proud to develop this project in close cooperation with the following partners:

Unidad María de Maeztu CommSensLab-UPC from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in Spain, an international referenced team in the development of cubesat missions, winner of the 2017 ESA S^3 Challenge and Copernicus Masters competition

Open Cosmos a UK-based company delivering space mission services with small satellite technology with the vision to help solve Earth’s biggest challenges

EOS Engineering from Spain, a company with expertise in the development of horn and patch antennas and other RF components for spacecrafts.

COMET is looking for companies interested in this new and promising concept, that will enable new missions and enhance current ones with new communication, radar or other capabilities. It will be great to hear their potential needs and evaluate the feasibility of a payload, instrument or mission that could accomplish its objectives the proposed requirements. For information request, please contact jnietocomet-ingenieria.es.

COMET Ingeniería is a leading engineering company with a strong background in space deployable structures, having developed and tested large deployable booms and reflector rings within the frame of the European Space Agency contracts. It is currently the only company in Europe that has successfully deployed a 10 meters long mast with a gravity compensation system, simulating zero-g environment.
