Developed by SITAEL and its partners Thales Alenia Space Italia, Leonardo and Airbus under the homonymous ASI program, the PLATiNO Mini-Satellite Platform is characterized by state-of-art bus performances and is designed explicitly with multi-purpose/multi-payload features. PLATiNO is developed with a design-to-cost approach, granting the product the capability to compete on the global market, both institutional and private.
PLATiNO Minisatellite Platform is characterized by state-of-art bus performances, high payload embarking capability, modular structure (P/L and P/F modules, easing MAIT activities), designed explicitly with multi-purpose features. PLATiNO is an all-electric platform, equipped with SITAEL low power Hall effect electric propulsion subsystem (enhanced orbit control/manoeuvering capabilities), characterized by high power availability on-board (large deployable solar arrays and high battery capacity) and high performance AOCS (fine pointing with star tracker and high agility by torque/momentum actuators). PLATiNO Platform, with its flexibility and multi-purpose features, is suitable for a wide series of space missions.
