CONFIGURABLE END-FRAMES LAYOUT


Q- Quad Aperture

 

Quad aperture layout is the standard layout of SM12 end-frames presenting 4x  83x90 mm aperture. 

D- Double Aperture

 

Double aperture layout presenting 2 aperture of 83x210 mm to allow integration of 6U form factor components.


C- Central Aperture

 

The suitable solution for  centered axial aligned payload such optics and propulsion system thanks to a central 100x100 mm aperture

F- Full Frame Aperture

 

The solution allowing the maximum flexibility for demanding payload such as large optics thanks to a total clearance of 200x200 mm.


CUSTOMIZABLE STACK MOUNTING LAYOUT


Wide combination of stack mounting solutions are possible exploiting SM modularity: horizontal, vertical e transversal with customizable length.

 

  • VERTICAL MOUNTING 

     Vertical stack mounting allows to integrate separated stack of 1U size as well as custom length stack exploiting more than 20 fixing hole available at different height

  • TRANSVERSAL MOUNTING
    Transversal stack mounting allows to integrate separated stack of 1U or 2U size.
  • HORIZONTAL MOUNTING 
    Horizontal stack mounting allows to integrate separated stack of 1U or 2U size
  • CFRP MULTIPURPOSE FRAME
    Multipurpose inner frame SM12 compatible can be exploited as stack and payload support structure, facilitating the integration of the satellite.  Made in aluminum or CFRP qualified for outgassing standards, the solution ensures high mechanical performances with a reduced impact on the overall satellite mass.
