Fields of competence
ROBOTNOR represents a unique synergy of academic and industrial expertise which allows us to counsel and comprehend a wide variety of tasks and projects. Our fields of competence are numerous and diverse.
nCube-2 was launched 27 October, 2005. It was a cubesat, a 10 cm cube weighing less than 1kg. It contained an attitude control system using magnetic coils as actuators and magnetometer and sun sensor as measurements. The mission was to receive and transmit AIS signals from ships and reindeer. The spacecraft reached orbit, but communication was not achieved.
nCube-1 (renamed Rudolf due to the reindeer tracking task) was launched from Baikonur cosmodrome in Khasakstan on July 26th 2006, but the launch vehicle, a Dnepr crashed during launch.
