HSAT, a 6U cubesat using a bus manufactured by Blue Canyon Technologies for the Harris Corporation, successfully launched from India’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) and has begun initial operations.
The briefcase-sized spacecraft will test and characterize the performance of a payload in a circular SSO LEO.
Blue Canyon Technologies is proud to support the Harris Corporation as a partner on the HSAT mission. BCT’s 6U spacecraft bus is a state-of-the-art, high-performance smallsat platform that maximizes available payload volume.
The spacecraft includes ultra-high-performance pointing accuracy, robust power system, command and data handling, RF communications, optional propulsion, and multiple flexible payload interfaces. The BCT XB Spacecraft family provides a complete solution for payload needs ranging from a 3U cubesat to ESPA-class.
