Space Norway signerer satellittkontrakt med OHB Sweden

Space Norway and OHB Sweden, have signed a contract to build, launch and operate a micro satellite, called ADIS, which is based on the OHB Sweden’s InnoSat platform.

The Application Development Infrastructure in Space (ADIS) satellite is a microsatellite mission by Space Norway AS hosting a wideband frequency agile SDR payload as its primary payload and a VDES payload as its secondary payload. OHB Sweden’s flight proven InnoSat microsatellite platform has been selected to host the payloads together with supporting antennas and subsystems for wideband communication.

OHB Sweden’s responsibility in this mission includes: overall system level space segment design based on the InnoSat platform, integration and testing, launch, Mission Control Software (RAMSES) and LEOP and In-Orbit-Commissioning services.

Space Norway will be the owner and operator of the ADIS satellite. The first task the satellite will embark upon is to demonstrate satellite-based Internet of Things services in the frequency range 1500-5000 MHz. These demonstrations will be conducted on behalf of the European Space Agency and will support the regulatory process both in Europe and globally through the ITU towards WRC-27. The payloads will be provided by Space Norway through Norwegian subcontractors Kongsberg Discovery AS, Seatex (VDES) and Widenorth AS (SDR). A third Norwegian company, Comrod AS, is also involved in designing antenna solutions for the ADIS satellite.

“We are pleased to have signed a contract with OHB Sweden on our ADIS satellite mission and to be  part of the first Swedish-Norwegian satellite project. Myself and the project team are looking forward to working closely with the highly skilled and experienced team at OHB Sweden, " says Dag H. Stølan, CEO og Space Norway.

“We are very glad to work together with such an experienced and well-established customer as Space Norway  in supporting highly innovative space-based IoT services on the ADIS mission. I am happy to see that InnoSat #7 has found a customer which values innovation just like us", says Benoit Mathieu, Managing Director of OHB Sweden.
