Satellites

PacSci EMC has built the reputation as a leading supplier of reliable, proven products for the Space industry.  We understand the importance of developing and delivering the safest, most reliable products in the world.  Leveraging on these strengths, we are now developing innovative sequencing and propulsion products for use in Space.  We’ve been supporting satellites from Explorer I to SMAPS to the recently launched OSIRIS REx. Utilizing our leap ahead technology leveraged from previous flight experiences, we offer cost-effective dispensing options, innovative satellite propulsion and lower life cycle costs. When reliability counts to function your CubeSat, SmallSat and large satellites, you can depend upon our engineering to support your mission.

Our release mechanisms are used for satellite and spacecraft instrument release and deployment.  We offer a full line of non-explosive and pyrotechnic separation nuts, pin pullers, pin pushers and cutters to reliably perform mission-critical release functions. From payload release on launch vehicles to the restraint and release of solar panels, antennas, scientific instruments, and sun shields, we offer reliability you can depend on.

CubeSat Sequencing

Satellite Sequencing

Reliable. Efficient.

Our satellite sequencer offers an alternative to launch multiple satellite payloads into constellations, providing a weight and power advantage over traditional pyro firing systems.

ENVELOPE / INTERFACE DIMENSIONS

Helping Achieve Mission Success

The game-changer in small satellite propulsion is the ability to control orbital attitude and planes, extending the time in space and managing the deorbiting sequence. This enables the expansion of a satellite’s use and maximizes mission objectives. Climbing to an orbit, staying in an orbit for a longer period of time and then re-entering the atmosphere without pressurized tanks, bulky valves, or neutralizing cathodes is the intention of PacSci EMC’s commercial space innovations.

ENABLING MISSION SUCCESS

Hold Down Release Mechanism

In a nutshell, a Hold Down Release Mechanism (HDRM)  is used to keep spacecraft equipment in a stowed position during launch and, when in proper orbiting position, then releases the equipment upon an external command.
