Proper design of a satellite with taking regards of the mission objective is the key for successful space missions. One of the most important service we provide is planning and evaluating the needs of the client and designing the most effective solution using know-how from several space missions. We are using modern and effective software and simulation tools.

Mission design includes:

  • Mission requirements analysis
  • Selecting right components
  • Satellite configuration
  • Appropriate technical solutions
  • Customization of technology
  • Budgeting
  • Orbit prediction and determination
  • Attitude determination
  • Ground Trace



Important part of mission design and engineering is a research and development process. In view of this fact, to accomplish the purpose of the project it is crucial to have the best solutions available.

Launch campaign

days to next launch

days - our longest stay in space for a satellite

Do you want to get your project into space? With us, you can do it! Getting into the orbit is not super expensive anymore. Development in engineering has enabled the launch of multiple satellites with different sizes to several orbits within one mission. Hence, space launches have become more affordable than before.

1 Administration

Getting into space is a difficult and complicated process which can take months. But with us, you don't have to worry about all the paperwork, tests or transportation. We can do following for you:

  • define the mission parameters
  • define launch schedule and launch window
  • necessary paperwork

2 Our target orbits

We can take your space project on several orbits. Each one differs by the altitude. Selecting the orbit defines also launch date, launch site, launch vehicle and price.

  • SSO (Sun Synchronous orbit) - is a nearly polar orbit around Earth, in which the satellite passes over any given point of the planet's surface at the same local time.
  • LEO (Low Earth Orbit) - is an Earth-centered orbit with an altitude of 2,000 km or less in which satellite orbital period will be at 128 minutes or less
  • Polar Orbit - region in which satellite passes above Earth poles and has an inclination of (or very close to) 90 degrees to the body's equator.
  • ISS
  • GEO and Deep Space


Ground station services

The ground segment is an inseparable part of a satellite which receives, decodes and stores received data.

We are running our own ground stations (GS) in Slovakia and operate several in Central Europe. The concept and precise gears of Slovak manufacturer allows for precise tracking of satellites with accuracy better than 0.1 degree with 100 kg parabolic antenna, which is necessary for keeping connections on frequencies higher than 1 GHz. This ground segment is possible to use for missions and other scientific and ham radio projects. For signal reception of our satellite, we also use services of other receiving stations. Important part of the ground segment is decoding software which allows for clear display of telemetric data from individual systems and was developed by us as well.

Global ground stations services

We secure services for the use of the global satellite ground stations system.

Following questions can be answered then:

  • Where is my cubesat right now?
  • What observations happened today?
  • What was the signal received during a particular observation?
  • What are the actual data received (result of signal interpretation)?


Stratospheric flights

Spacemanic provides stratospheric flights by using our own stratospheric platform. More than 30 stratospheric flights and 50 scientific and technological experiments at the edge of space have been successfully done up to now. Those are well-suitable for R&D institutions, tech companies and customers from advertising and marketing as well.

Completed services can be afforded, from the preparation of the probe, through its launch and tracking, to the delivery of the payload back to the customer.

Thanks to the flight into the stratosphere, not only amazing images of customer's products from 30-40 km altitude can be gotten but also scientific findings, as the stratosphere provides very interesting conditions for research.

Main features:

  • Own design strato-probe
  • ~40km altitude
  • Payload up to 5Kg
  • Redundant system (two radio bands + GSM module)
  • Complete service
    • Payload integration
    • Launch services
    • Experiment and data delivery


Cubesat as a service is an end-to-end service including:

  • mission design and analysis
  • subsystem manufacturing and test
  • spacecraft integration
  • launch and deployment
  • on-orbit operations

This service brings to a customer full customized solution from mission design to on-orbit operations. Cubesat developed by us is tailor-made to a payload to be launched into space according to customer's requirements. We provide building of the cubesat, testing it, getting into orbit, operating and collecting data - All in one package.

Our main goal is to bring innovations in a matter of rapid satellite development to shrink a time from order to on-orbit delivery within several months. For this purpose we have developed new, innovative and modular cubesat components, easily customizable for customers' needs.

Our Space Services:

  • Mission design and analysis using AGI STK and Matlab tools
