Small UWE from Orbit

UWE is a series of so-called Pico satellites with an edge length of 10 cm and a weight of only one kilo. Thanks to the most innovative technology, these tiny satellites have been orbiting for more than 2 years and transmitting data to Earth from a height of 800 km. UWE is a research project by students from Würzburg studying aerospace engineering in the field of miniaturisation technology. The knowledge gained by UWE is intended to provide improved communication with “large” satellites which, for example, can provide three-dimensional images of the effected area after earthquakes. FAULHABER is pleased to be on-board with this mission and to support UWE in regards to powerful micro drive technology.
