Our highly versatile Advanced Data and Power Management System – ADPMS – lies at the heart of our avionics capabilities.
Long Heritage – Exceptional Reliability
The ADPMS is a state-of-the-art avionics platform for Small & Medium satellites (PROBA series, ESA IXV shuttle).
Design Agility – High Performance
The ADPMS is highly adaptable and configurable and its ‘plug-and-play’ architecture gives the high-bandwidth, simplicity and reliability required for different types of satellite missions. The system’s modularity harnesses a range of advanced subsystems, including:
- OBC L3. A highly powerful space computer offering onboard processing power, system management and basic interfacing functionalities.
- RTU. A comprehensive set of interface modules to control and monitor onboard devices/units – standard, AOCS control and special I/Os are available.
- PCDU 100. A complete Power Conditioning (solar, battery, busses) and Distribution Unit
- PDHU & MM. Payload Data Handling Unit intended for on-board data acquisition, storage and playback capability. It fits to EO, Space Science missions and spacecraft Payloads control.
