Pride for the Polish space industry

New era

The largest and most advanced Polish satellite, EagleEye, will soon be launched into low Earth orbit using Elon Musk’s SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

Before the launch of the Transporter-11 mission, the satellite had to undergo final functional tests at the Vandenberg base in California to verify the correct operation of all device subsystems.

The mission operator is Exolaunch GmbH, a SpaceX operating partner.

Mission goal

A distinguishing feature of the mission is the ability to operate in a very low orbit (VLEO – Very Low Earth Orbit). The satellite, descending to an altitude of approximately 350 km, will provide better quality imaging of the Earth.

The EagleEye satellite was built by Creotech Instruments on the universal HyperSat satellite platform, which is already a key element of a number of civil and defense projects at national and European level.The modular nature of the platform can be used in a variety of missions, including to the Moon.

The project was implemented by an industrial and scientific consortium

Other Polish technology companies also participated in the EagleEye project, including: WiRan, Symkom, N7 Space, ILOT Institute of Aviation, National Center for Nuclear Research, RADMOR, Spacive, and WAMTECHNIK.

Consortium

The National Center for Research and Development was an institution co-financing the development of the EagleEye microsatellite system. The project was implemented under the Smart Growth Operational Program 2014-2020 from the European Regional Development Fund.

Total implementation cost: PLN 44,889,712.50
Funding: PLN 27,253,450.63
Project duration: April 2020 – June 2024

The EagleEye project is a breakthrough for the Polish space industry!

Technologies of tomorrow

EagleEye has a chance to introduce Poland to the elite group of countries with the ability to create such advanced space systems for national needs, the European Space Agency and customers from around the world. So far, only eight entities in Europe have proven their ability to build and test a satellite weighing at least 50 kg in space.

“Designing and building a satellite of this size in Poland required unique skills and experience. We are managing a mission that is of great importance for the entire domestic space sector. We open the door for domestic entities to the rapidly growing and profitable market of designing, building, integrating and launching small satellites into Earth orbit. It is a great honor and responsibility at the same time,” summed up Marcin Mazur, EagleEye Project Manager.
