Go to market for the first European ITAR free modular micro control moment gyroscope actuator enabling 10x more in-orbit agility to small satellites ranging from 50kg to 300kg

Project description

Improved satellite manoeuvring technology

The EU’s information needs, ranging from climate change to economic and societal changes, play a crucial role in daily processes as well as policymaking. Satellites help keep this system running, allowing Europe to respond appropriately and in a timely manner. Unfortunately, the need for satellites to manoeuvre, and their slow manoeuvring speed, can cause a slower response than needed. The EIC-funded SATAGILITY- GO2MARKET project offers a solution to this issue by developing novel actuators for the improved manoeuvring of satellites, allowing faster operating times and better connection.


Every day, satellites help Europe to respond better to new global and societal challenges: climate change, disaster management, security threats, migration, farming, transport, or energy.
To accomplish their mission, satellites need actuators to manoeuvre (i.e. change their orientation) and point towards the necessary targets on Earth (e.g. to collect imagery or simply to communicate). Our company, VEOWARE SPACE has developed an innovative next-gen space actuator technology enabling satellites to manoeuvre 10 times faster to boost their effectiveness. Our solution is a Control Moment Gyroscope, the microCMG.
VEOWARE’s technology has been fully tested and qualified on ground but to ensure product viability customer require an in-orbit demonstration. This project aims at bringing VEOWARE to market with a first flight in orbit and the scaling up of the sales team to prepare serving customer by 2023.
