The TechnoSat project, which is funded by the German Aerospace Center (DLR), aims to design, build and launch a nanosatellite. Primary mission objective of the TechnoSat mission is the demonstration and verification of newly designed components and subsystems for nanosatellites. The secondary mission objective is the design and operation of the adaptive and reusable nanosatellite platform TUBiX20. In this manner TechnoSat shall provide risk mitigation for the TUBIN mission, which will be launched one year after TechnoSat and is also based on TUBiX20. Due to the fact, that the payloads of the TechnoSat mission do not require high accuracy in pointing, the coarse attitude control system of TUBiX20 is included in the mission, providing a pointing knowledge of approximately 15 degrees and three-axis stabilisation with approximately 20 degree accuracy. The adaptivity implies in this case that the platform can be adjusted to different payloads, orbits and mission scenarios. TechnoSat itself has a mass of approximately 20 kg and measures about 305 x 465 x 465 mm without antennas.

TechnoSat carries a number of novel nanosatellite components for on-orbit verification as payload:

    AI Electromechanical Separation System (AIESS)
    Extendable Boom System (EBS)
    Fluid-Dynamic Actuator (FDA)
    Black-Body Hatch Mechanism (BBH)
    Star Tracker STELLA
