The Project Advanced materials company, First Graphene Limited is pleased to advise it has entered into a binding Memorandum of Understanding with SupremeSAT Ltd for the development of graphene enhanced componentry for SupremeSAT’s Miniature Satellite Assembly Project. This represents a promising new field of opportunity for the deployment of graphene which seeks to utilise the qualities of strength, heat resistance and radiation shielding.

SupremeSAT’s research has revealed the satellite market was worth US$991m in 2016 and is expected to grow to US$4.97b by 2025. Commercial purposes comprise 37% of the market, with civil purposes being 41% and the balance military and government purpose.

SupremeSAT is working on the Project with EnduroSAT Ltd of Bulgaria. Two leading universities in the USA will be joining this project shortly.

The Project will test satellite interconnectivity and data exchange between satellites and a data relay within a constellation. Initially a duo of 1.5U Cube Satellites will be assembled at SupremeSAT’s Satellite Assembling facility – Pallekele – Kandy, with hardware for the satellites, training and other variants of engineering support coming from EnduroSAT.

The partners will be collaborating with FGR to develop graphene enhanced components, for both strength and weight reduction, but all also heat and radiation shielding.

The purpose of partnership between SupremeSAT and the Universities is to fix a duo of spacecraft components on board the two 1.5U CubeSat units assembled by SupremeSAT to gather vital information in the earth’s atmosphere.

A duo of UHF ground tracking stations will be deployed at Pallekele – Kandy, within the area of SupremeSAT’s existing state of the art teleport facility. Assembly of the satellites will occur within SupremeSAT’s ISO-14644-1 Class 5 laboratory facility, which is also at Pallekele.

We are excited to working with SupremeSAT on this project, which is aimed at developing low orbit, miniature satellites for the ADS – “Automatic Dependent Surveillance “ system for aircraft
