Engineers from the Warsaw-based GMV Innovating Solutions, together with partners, including the Space Research Center of the Polish Academy of Sciences, have developed a satellite navigation receiver (GNSS) intended for the micro- and nanosatellites market. The device with two applications: for satellites and for small launchers, has already successfully passed the last ground tests and is currently being prepared for tests in low Earth orbit.
The space industry in Poland will soon be enriched with an innovative product that has a chance to be mass-produced. It will be a satellite navigation receiver (GNSS) intended for the dynamically developing global market of micro- and nanosatellites. A device with two applications: for satellites and for small carrier rockets, is being developed by engineers from the Warsaw-based GMV Innovating Solutions. Both variants have already successfully passed the last ground tests and are currently being prepared for tests in low Earth orbit.
“Another advantage of the GNSS receiver, extremely important from the perspective of the construction of micro- and nanosatellites, is its versatility, small size and the possibility of cheap and quick serial production. The segment of small and nano-satellites, driven by the growing need for cheap access to space, is growing at a dizzying pace. Analysts indicate that in the next five years it will increase by over 200% and will reach the value of almost USD 6 billion. The entry of Polish entities into this market is proof of the growing maturity of the domestic space industry, which thus contributes to the commercialization of Polish technological thought” – says Paweł Wojtkiewicz, director of the space sector at GMV Innovating Solutions.
