Power in Low Earth Orbit. Verified.
More than 17,000 satellites are announced for launch into Low Earth Orbit (LEO) before 2027, for the purpose of real-time Earth observation and worldwide connectivity.
The ERC Proof of Concept Grant 966770 “LEOpowver” harvest results of the ERC Advanced Grant 695614 “POWVER” for the LEO market to arrive at orbit-proof software for the continuous, fully automated, power-optimal and profit maximising dynamic operation of Low Earth Satellite constellations.
The central activities of LEOpowver are (i) in-orbit validations on a LEO satellite constellation and (ii) in-depth exploration of commercialisation opportunities for the orbit-proof software.
The core details of this project can be found in our paper “Managing Fleets of LEO Satellites: Nonlinear, Optimal, Efficient, Scalable, Usable, and Robust”.
