The EXA ICEPS is designed to be the central operational heart of CubeSats, enabling modular use of higher performance hardware and features. ICEPS compresses the functions of many cards into a single, 25mm-thick system, using modularity for fully customizable hardware that can range from being simply an EPS or including a range of features.
ICEPS can interface and work with any compatible USB hardware, but it is designed to optimally operate in conjunction with EXA-developed hardware, like BA03 Battery Arrays, DMSAs (Deployable Solar Panel), and SEAM/NEMEA shielding. ICEPS is also the system core of the EXA's KRATOS spacecraft bus, including all of these components. Although initially designed to handle requirements for a 1U CubeSat, ICEPS is ready and able to handle all these requirements for larger CubeSat missions.
ICEPS is set to launch on IRVINE03 onboard the NASA ELaNa launch in Q4/2021, on IRVINE04 onboard ELaNA also in 2022, on K'OTO onboard HTV for Q3/2021, and onboard INSPIREFLY for 2022. It is also the system core of an upcoming lunar mission onboard the Astrobotic Peregrine Lander, set to land on the moon in Q3/2021.
The central features of the system core include:
- Embedded laser communications
- Integrated Epik Z2 OBC with 2 SDR radios
- USB and I2C bus
- SSD storage up to 512GB
- Automatic control of deployables
- 100W capable EPS
- 6-axis IMU
- ITAR free product
ICEPS is delivered with:
- Full engineering support
- Test reports and ICD
- Interface custom cables
- Choice of aluminum spacers M2.5
