PICOSATS views small satellites as the future for a number of applications like telecommunication, space exploration, and technology validation. The access to space right now can be difficult for many researcher institutes and companies, that right now cannot afford it because small satellites technology does not respond to their needs, and bigger satellites are too expensive. PICOSATS wants to make space and communications more accessible, affordable, and sustainable, thanks to its space physics and engineering experience. We are developing a new generation of small satellites, combining an innovative mechanical structure with an advanced communication system, enabling smaller budget to share bigger amount of information in a sustainable way. The two products are named RADIOSAT, the miniaturized Ka band radio, funded by the European Space Agency, and BRICSAT, the polymeric 3D printed structure, granted by the European Commission through the SME Instrument - Phase 1.

PICOSATS wants to make space and communications more accessible, affordable, and sustainable, thanks to its space physics and engineering experience.

The two products are named RADIOSAT, the miniaturized Ka band radio, funded by the European Space Agency, and BRICSAT, the polymeric 3D printed structure, granted by the European Commission through the SME Instrument - Phase 1.
In general, due to the subsystems provided by PICOSATS, small satellites will gain the following features:
- Superior data transmission
- Design flexibility
- Reduced missions overall costs
- Reduced mass
- Fast delivery time
- The possibility of in-orbit assembly
- Reduced environmental impact of space debris.
The company at the moment identifies its main customer with the European Space Agency, which is financing the radio. Once the product will be finished, this will be PICOSATS property, almost ready for the market. In the meanwhile, the company developed the sufficient capacity to deliver specific engineering services related to telecommunication engineering and mission scenario preparation, studying the future satellites orbits. Thanks to its network among the scientific community and the European satellite industry, PICOSATS succeeded in creating a consistent number of consortium for designing and developing space hardware.
