What we do


The GreenBox service from R-Space is a dedicated In-orbit Demonstration and In-Orbit Validation (IOV) service. The form factor of the satellite bus is similar to a 2U CubeSat. The bus was designed for IOD/IOV purpose only and reduces the satellite's complexity to a minimum.  

The GreenBox service is very fast. Following an initial phase in which R-Space and the customer assess the suitability of the customer's technology for the GreenBox service, R-Space ensures the delivery into orbit within 6 months.

The customer receives the Payload Accommodation Unit (PAU) and integrates its technology into it. Due to the low number and simple satellite interface requirements, this process is so straightforward that the customer can focus 100% on its technology and does not require any expert knowledge about satellites.

As soon as the customer has integrated the payload into the PAU, R-Space will conduct all the required steps until launch. Following a successful launch and orbit injection, R-Space will operate the satellite until all required data are generated and transmitted to the customer and the contract ends. Complying with Austrian law, R-Space will ensure the removal of the satellite from its orbit. 

1. Feasability Assessment

Signature of a Non-Disclosure Agreement. Exchange of major interface and requirement information. Negotiation of service components.

2. Contract Signature

Signature of service agreement. Exchange of detailed requirements and interface control documents. Customer receives the PAU and starts integration and tests.

3. PAU Delivery

Customer finished integration of their technology into the PAU and passes all functional testing. The PAU is delivered back to R-Space.

4. PAU Integration

R-Space receives the PAU with integrated customer technology. Following an integration and test review, R-Space is integrating the PAU in the satellite bus.

5. Satellite Qualification

R-Space is conducting all necessary environmental testing on satellite level. Customer receives all test results.

6. Launch

R-Space conducts the flight readiness review and delivers the satellite with the customers technology to the launch provider. Launch!

7. Operation

R-Space is operating the satellite. Customer reveives telemetry from the experiment. Operation is reviewed and adjusted in weekly meetings with the customer. 

8. Successful End of Mission

Following the collection of all required data, R-Space will initiate the removal of the satellite from orbit.
