The ReOrbit Gluon Explorer is a microsatellite platform optimized for high autonomy, fault tolerance and in-orbit networking. It is designed for MEO, GEO and deep space orbits, particularly for GNSS, data relays, Satcom and Earth Observation (EO) applications.

The design follows a payload-agnostic approach, maximizing service availability and cost effectiveness.

Key features

  • Software-defined architecture & modular avionics
  • Reconfigurable in-orbit
  • Precision ADCS - Optical Communications Capable
  • X-Band electronically steerable phased array
  • Rideshare-ready
  • Autonomous Orbit Keeping and FDIR (Failure Detection and Recovery)
  • Minimal NRE (Non-Recurring Engineering)


The Gluon family is scalable from 150 kg to 500 kg platforms. See also:
