GROOVE is your chance to send hardware or experiments to space in an unprecedentedly easy, straightforward, fast and cost effective way.

One satellite – 10 users

Based on flight proven and reliable components, we have designed a CubeSat bus with 10 identical payload slots.

In this way, all customers share the resources of the satellite in terms of volume, mass, duty cycle, power and downlink capacity, reducing the overall costs by an order of magnitude.

Example Use Cases

GROOVE is perfect for:

On Orbit Verification

Science

Student Projects

Microgravity experiments

Upcoming advanced slot specifications will allow for pressurized slots, video feedback and more.

After booking a slot on a scheduled mission online, you develop your payload in accordance with the GROOVE specification and deliver it to us shortly before launch.
After a standardized compatibility check, the payload is integrated into a preproduced GROOVE bus. The satellite is then launched within three months.

Once in Orbit and successfully commissioned, our groundstations track the satellite and receive the data from the payload slots.

The data packages are then forwarded directly and without preprocessing to the customer over the internet.
