THINKING

 

OUTSIDE

 

THE BOX




DcubeD (Deployables Cubed GmbH) will help you to think outside the box with their COTS release actuators and COTS deployables that are specifically designed for SmallSat applications. DcubeD’s release actuators (pin puller and release nut) are readily available, easy to use and small in size. The DcubeD SmallSat deployables (Space Selfie Stick, 100W 1U solar array and deployable radiator) tackle the needs of NewSpace customers, namely maximum performance in space, while remaining packed efficiently in a standardized volume for launch.
If you think of the launchers as the taxi to space, you can consider DcubeD to be the door openers and the ones that click open the umbrella.

11:00 AM — Design and Development of PowerCube: an Origami-Inspired 100W Solar Array for Nanosatellites, dr. antonio pedivellano
 
WHAT WE DO: dcubed develops actuators and deployable structures tailored for nano-satellites and the commerical space industry
HOLD-DOWN AND RELEASE: RELEASE mechanism for satellites, space stations, landers and rovers
SATELLITE DEPLOYMENT: RELEASE THE SATELLITE FROM THE ROCKET/SATELLITE FROM THE ROCKET/SATELLITE DEPLOYER 
smallsat deployables: deployable structures (like solar arrays, radiators, baffles, antennas, …) that are small on earth and big in space   
mission & vision


ACCELERATE THE UTILIZATION OF SPACE THROUGH THE CREATION OF INNOVATIVE AND USER-FRIENDLY Technologies.

UNLOCK SPACE TECHNOLOGY. TOGETHER. TO UNFOLD A BRIGHTER FUTURE.

release actuators
DCUBED develops resettable release actuators to be accessible for the small and nanosatellite market. These release actuators are commonly used ad HDRMs to ensure that critical mechanisms are locked for launch, as door openers for PocketQube or CubeSat Deployers and Pods or for triggering the release of deployable structures like solar arrays and antennas.

adaptable interfaces
our actuator come standardized in a cubic shape with two threads but customizable interfaces are possible. just get in touch with us about your needs. 
deployables
OUR DEPLOYABLE STRUCTURES ENSURE THAT THE MAXIMUM SIZE AND FUNCTIONALITY CAN BE ACHIEVED IN SPACE WHILE OCCUPYING THE SMALLEST STORAGE VOLUME ON THE LAUNCHER.
PowerCube Solar Array

powercube 100w 1 u solar array
PowerCube addresses this need by delivering a Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS), scalable, deployable solar array for nanosatellites, storable in less than a 1U CubeSat unit, and capable of generating 100W at EOL (End of Life).

Specification:
  • 1 U stored form factor
  • End of Life Power: 100W (5 years lifetime)
  • Bus Voltage: 14.7 to 24V
  • Redundant actuation
  • Compliant with the CubeSat standard (CP-CDS-R14)
  • Compatible with standard CubeSat dispensers
space selfie stick d3s3 
How can high-quality promotional images of your satellite be obtained directly from space? How can your satellite’s health be monitored and its problems trouble-shot without relying solely on on-board sensors? And most crucially, how to prove to your client that the satellite has made it safely to space and is fulfilling its objectives as planned? Or do you simply want to have a nice picture of your satellite or launcher with the Earth, Moon or Mars in the background? DcubeD’s D3S3 “Space Selfie Stick” is the solution to all of these problems.
 
Specification:
  • Size: 90x90x40mm
  • Weight: <300g
  • 80cm deployed boom length
  • wide angle lense
  • multiple sticks/cameras can be attached
  • Flight proven on SpaceX Transporter 3 in January 2022
