WE MAKE SPACE ACCESSIBLE TO EVERYONE

We can efficiently fly your space payload, for example a product, logo, experiment or anything else weighing up to 2 kg, into near-space. We can make photos and produce video documentation for the purpose of space marketing. Additionally, we can conduct scientific and technological testing, in the extreme conditions of space, on top of performing commercial flights.

YEP, TAKE US UP THERE!

SEE HOW IT WORKS

It is a very simple process. You can calculate the price of our services and make a preliminary order within a few seconds. Then, you just need to send us your “space payload” and the rest is up to us. We will perform the stratospheric flight with the relevant documentation, as per your order, and we will send you the material within the agreed timelines.

Make an order

You can make the preliminary order in just a few seconds. Use the online calculator. All you need to know the delivery weight, mass and deadline.

Send your space payload

You can simply send us the space payload that you want to be taken into near-space through a courier service. Following the stratospheric flight, we will send it back to you.

Receive the results

We will perform the stratospheric flight and deliver the results and data, as per your order and within the agreed delivery deadline.

As we said, it's easy and fun! We want to facilitate original space marketing and provide extreme experimental testing conditions for scientists.

SPACECRAFT = STRATOSPHERIC PROBE

Our means of transport to the near-space consists of three components: a stratospheric balloon and a stratospheric probe, which are connected through a terminator. The individual components of the spacecraft are described below.

ABOUT THE STRATOSPHERIC BALLOON

The stratospheric balloon is a pilotless balloon filled with helium gas (there is an option to fill it with hydrogen). At the start, it has a diameter of 2 metres and a volume of about 4,000 litres. Due to the declining pressure, the balloon will gradually expand in size. At a height of 25,000 metres, it will hava a diameter of about 12 metres. When the size of the balloon will reach its physical limits, it will burst. It can get up to a maximum of 50 km. Above that limit, the air becomes too thin, and thus there is nothing to push the balloon any higher. There is a terminator between the stratospheric probe and the balloon, which will separate the probe from the cord. Subsequently, the parachute will be activated in order to ensure a safe and smooth landing for the probe and its contents.

ABOUT THE STRATOSPHERIC PROBE

The stratospheric probe consists of five modules: transceiver module (transmitter) for close scanning (radio beacon), power system (PSU Board), a sensors board that includes a master processor (trip computer) and a system for detecting the probe’s position in real time. Individual modules communicate with each other using a I2C bus. The modules are connected in a stack (board to board). The I2C bus’s hardware solution is similar to the solution used in microsatellites of the CubeSat type. It is also used in the solution and the connection of operating signals, on top of the data transfer.

SPACE CREW IN THE BACKGROUND

The operation of flights into the stratosphere is conducted by a coordinated team of professionals. Each team member has a unique role and responsibility. The team is composed of hardware developers, hardware encoders, radio technicians, microprocessor programmers, and even a meteorologists and others listed below:

Jaroslav Erdziak

STU doctoral student at the Institute of Electrical Engineering. He works as a developer for weather station sensors. He is dedicated to simulated flights and works on the development of the first Slovak satellite skCube.

Rudolf Slošiar

Design and production of stratospheric probes, parachute sewing, production of antennas and terminator components. In his spare time, he deals with radio astronomy and participates in the project skCube.

Ondrej Závodský

Student at the University of Žilina, Department of Power Electronics Systems. He is dedicated to electronics and ham radios. He is also one of the leaders in the development of the first Slovak satellite skCube.

Adam Krovina

Engineer in the field of measurement and information technology at the Institute of Electrical Engineering at STU. He is a HW programmer with an interest in self-sufficient electronics that can make long-term measurements.

Juraj Slačka

Programmer of microprocessors and testing platforms. He is a doctoral student at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at STU, Department of Cybernetics. He is also a member of the skCube team.

Ladislav Balint

He works as a chemist and a meteorologist. He has been interested in astronomy since childhood. He focuses mainly on astronomy and activities relating to the Slovak organisation for space activities in his spare time.

Boris Fugger

International business consultant and space enthusiast. He is an MBA graduate from the City University of Seattle, currently working on our organizational development strategy and GOSPACE business development in the Middle East and Africa region.

Pavol Turčina

Responsible for the entire operation and the satisfaction of our customers. He is in charge of management, sales and public relations. Pavol studied at the University of Economics in Bratislava and now works as the CEO of the GOSPACE company.
