The development of satellites using conventional design methods requires physical prototypes and several design iterations, therefore leading to a lengthy process that requires significant resources and funding. This project, with KISPE Space as a part of the Digital Engineering Technology & Innovation (DETI) programme, aims to solve this issue for the development of the Open Source Satellite (OSSAT) structural design.

Generative design optimisation for OSSAT

At CFMS, we produced a range of solutions using a generative design optimisation approach. This approach uses digital engineering tools to eliminate the need for individual builds and tests, not only developing a next-generation low-cost satellite but ultimately improving the overall Open Source Satellite (OSSAT) structural design and performance. This project showcases how applying digital engineering techniques can be adapted and exploited across a vast range of industry sectors.
