  35. 35. 2013 – The year it became a business ! Summary of 02/2014 SpaceWorks report • Commercial companies will contribute over one fourth of all nano/microsatellites launched in 2014 – This is a significant increase from 2013, where the commercial sector contributed only 11% – The continued emergence and growth of commercial companies (see table) will result in an even greater increase in 2015, with the sector contributing 60% of all nano/microsatellites launched • Many companies have publicly revealed their near-term intentions regarding future launches of nano/microsatellites and the satellites’ wide spectrum of revenue generating applications • Other companies have been more reserved, revealing only small details of their plans Precise quantities aside, strong evidence suggests the commercial sector will have a meaningful and enduring impact on the nano/microsatellite industry Pariente - Nanosatellite Industry Overview Feb 201435

  42. 42. Myth: Nanosatellites are not reliable, Their success rate is less than 50% Fact: Success rate of Nanosatellite projects for the last five years is stable >80% • Nanosatellites Industry is complex, and incorporates industrial, research and academic institutes • Discussing “Nanosatellites Reliability” without taking into account who manufactured the satellites is like discussing “automobile reliability” while comparing BMW to TATA Myth #1: Nanosatellites Reliability Pariente - Nanosatellite Industry Overview Feb 201442
  43. 43. Are COTS Reliable enough ? Excluding the three large launch campaigns in 2013-2014 the success rate is 80% Pariente - Nanosatellite Industry Overview 82% 91% 93% 99% 92% 95% 95% 99% 16.00 21.71 27.40 47.00 10.00 15.00 20.00 25.00 30.00 35.00 40.00 45.00 50.00 55.00 60.00 60% 65% 70% 75% 80% 85% 90% 95% 100% 2003-2014 2007-2014 2009-2014 2013-2014 Overall Succes rate Success in Space #/year Feb 201443
  44. 44. Myth: COTS are not reliable, They are the cause for failures Fact: Components are very reliable, the problem is workmanship • Two thirds of the projects are done by amateurs with no experience in space standards AIT • Technical analysis presented @2011 small sat conference showed most failures are related to workmanship • Flagship schools build “real” missions that work (90% success) - • Components are getting better all the time – This is a competitive market with several leading manufacturers pushing for constant quality improvement of products Myth #2: Components Reliability Pariente - Nanosatellite Industry Overview Feb 201444
  45. 45. Most satellites are being built by amateurs Attack of the CubeSats: A Statistical Look: Michael Swartwout – Saint Louis University Pariente - Nanosatellite Industry Overview Feb 201445
  46. 46. Myth: Nanosatellites that reach space last for several months and than die Fact: There are nanosatellites that launched more than a decade ago and are still operational • COTS are now RAD tolerant up to 20 Krad • Computers are Latchup and SEU protected • Low cost allow redundancy – Several items in a satellite – Several satellites (mission redundancy) Myth #3: Nanosatellites don’t last long in space Pariente - Nanosatellite Industry Overview Feb 201446

  51. 51. 2014 Market assessment conclusions • The civil sector remains strong, but the eruption of commercial companies and start- up activities will continue to influence the nano/microsatellite market; future launches suggest this trend will continue • Projections based on both announced and anticipated plans of developers indicate 2,000 – 2,750 nano/microsatellites will require a launch from 2014 through 2020 Pariente - Nanosatellite Industry Overview Feb 201451
  52. 52. • 4rd Generation is here ! – Since 2012 success rate is more than 90% • Commercial companies will dominate the CubeSat market – EDU project will decrease to 25% of the market • Workmanship is the main cause for failures – Communication system failures are often due to bad wiring and not transmitter or receiver failures – Power system failures mostly occur due to connection loss between solar panels and batteries • Quality of subsystem is constantly improving – Number of manufacturers is rising, especially in Europe – Economical constraints derived meticulous QA – Competitiveness in the market manifests in the form of better quality products • High-End customers require High-End products – Space QA is now part of the production line Summary Pariente - Nanosatellite Industry Overview Feb 201452
