Spacetherm - Cubesat Project

The A. Proctor Group have supplied 5mm Cryogel to the University of Warwick for use in their CubeSat. Cryogel was selected due to its low thermal conductivity which meant it would maintain an operating temperature inside the satellite of no colder than -40°C.

The CubeSat is 10x10x10cms and is due to be launched 100km into space in March 2015. The A. Proctor Group’s Spacetherm® Aerogel combines a silica aerogel with fibres to produce a flexible yet robust blanket solution. This superior material is affordable for a wide range of challenging applications where thermal performance is crucial.

Spacetherm can provide a number of different solutions - dependent on the application - due to its hydrophobic nature, flexibility and ease of use. Aerogel’s low thermal conductivity, compression strength and breathability have made it the insulation material of choice for many clients.

The team have been selected to have a place on REXUS (rocket Experiments for University Students) launching from the north of Sweden within the Arctic Circle.

The REXUS/BEXUS programme is realised under a bilateral Agency Agreement between the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) and the Swedish National Space Board (SNSB). The Swedish share of the payload has been made available to students from other European countries through collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA).”
