Our Products for Small Satellites


High Performance SDR

TOTEM is a flight proven high performance SDR platform designed specifically for small satellites. Its in-orbit reconfigurability makes it very convenient for any communication nanosatellite.

Software highlights

  • Embedded Linux.
  • Safe in-orbit updates.
  • TOTEM TMTC based on PUS (ESA).
  • Radio applications / waveforms development. SoapySDR driver provided and GNURadio support.
  • Wideband transceiver: 70 MHz – 6 GHz

Customize TOTEM with external frontends

Add an external RF frontend as piggyback board making it fully operational in the desired frequency band.

TOTEM Applications


TOTEM IoT is our application for small satellite missions related to IoT services and M2M communications.


TOTEM ADS-B is Alén Space’s payload for aircraft tracking and air control. 


TOTEM AIS is an ideal solution for ship monitoring and maritime traffic control. 

TOTEM sigint

TOTEM SIGINT provides Spectrum Monitoring and Signal Intelligence services.

OBC + TTC + OBSW in One Module

TRISKEL, OBC + TTC + OBSW in one single module
An integral three-in-one solution to save space while maintaining the redundancy and reliability expected from space hardware.
Plug&Play compatibility out of the box ensured with many subsystems of different suppliers. Ideal for rapid prototyping of payload integration into satellite platforms.
Engineered with ECSS and ESA Packet Utilization Standards (PUS) and the quality of a team with 100% mission success rate.

What does TRISKEL include?

  • On-board Computer (OBC).
  • Telemetry, Tracking, and Command (TTC).
  • SDK. Everything you need to develop your own OBSW.
  • Optional: On-board Software (OBSW). Based on the ESA Packet Utilization Standard (PUS).

GS-Kit: Integral Solution for UHF, VHF and S-Band

GS-Kit from Deimos Engineering and Systems
The Ground Station Kit (GS-Kit) is Alén Space’s all-in-one solution that will allow you to set up a ground station and track Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites that operate in commercial and amateur bands. It can support simultaneously three different bands: VHF, UHF and S-band.
Its easy assembly makes site survey, training and installation assistance by our technicians only needed upon request.

What does GS-Kit include?

  • All the necessary elements to install a ground station: structure, antennas, cables, azimuth and elevation rotors.
  • Strong structure with easy assembly.
  • SDR-Rack: rackable dual Software Defined Radio compatible with GNU Radio.
  • Ground station control software.
  • Installation and operation manual.
