Platforms

V-BUS is a highly modular, multi-purpose platform containing flight-proven subsystems compatible with CubeSat standards. The Spacecraft is capable of supporting a wide range of requirements and is designed to maximize its lifetime. Precise pointing, energy efficiency, and high payload volume make this spacecraft ideal for earth observation, IoT and communication services, and educational and science experiment missions.

Availability: 6 months

More information

The bus is delivered mechanically, electrically, and functionally tested, and ready for payload integration. Integration services can be provided by Serenum, including qualification and acceptance of the payload.


V-BUS CubeSat platforms are based on flight heritage of VZLUSAT-1 and VZLUSAT-2. The first spacecraft of the series, VZLUSAT-1, was launched in 2017 as a multi-payload 2U CubeSat with in-orbit deployment mechanism expanding it to 3U size. After more than 4 years, VZLUSAT-1 is still in operation. VZLUSAT-2 is expected to launch in 2021 as a 3U-sized CubeSat containing a wide range of payloads, including two optical systems for Earth observation, coupled with ADCS developed by VZLU.
