Space Science & Exploration

Enabling discovery through advanced engineering


Flight Systems

Deimos capabilities in flight systems include preliminary and detailed design, systems engineering, algorithms definition, prototyping, development of on-board software, system integration, validation, deployment and support to commissioning and operations. The company has contributed to the space segment of almost all recent ESA missions.

Mission Analysis & Design

Preliminary definition of missions, determining the optimal mission profile to achieve a given set of objectives. At this stage, Deimos addresses issues such as launch windows, ascent and re-entry profiles, and transfer trajectories or interplanetary navigation. The company also develops turn-key software solutions for the space segment.

Systems engineering

Deimos focuses on the conception and design of integrated on-board Guidance, Navigation and Control and Attitude and Orbit Control Systems (GNC/AOCS) for a wide range of space mission scenarios. These scenarios include rendezvous and docking, atmospheric re-entry, launchers, non-atmospheric landing and formation flying. All our systems are engineered to be innovative, robust and have on-board autonomy.

Ground segment systems

Deimos Ground Segment solutions include Mission Planning and Scheduling, Flight Dynamics, Mission Monitoring & Control, Performance Monitoring, Calibration and Validation, Instrument Data Processing, Data Archive & Catalogue,  and System Performance Simulation, among others. The company develops the majority of the elements of a Ground Segment for Earth observation, satellite navigation and science systems.
