The AESV S-Class platform leverages a proprietary design to reduce the cost of manufacture by an order of magnitude. The S-Class platform is a 3-axis stabilized spacecraft capable of supporting 85kg payloads with up to 100W of Orbit Average Power (OAP). Designed for mass manufacture and intended for constellations, the S-Class supports a wide range of missions including earth observation, weather, and communication; and is capable of steady state operation in any orbit inclination and orientation without redesign. The platform form factor can leverage existing ride-share opportunities on ESPAs, or can be adapted to any of the numerous dedicated small launch vehicles currently under development to significantly reduce launch segment costs.
