We take care of safety, launch and installation
Thanks to our facilities you can use commercial components exploiting the most advanced technologies
Your experiment will be developed at your own speed
Your experiment, your rules
ICE Cubes Service is a simple and cost-effective way for your experiment or technology to fly onboard the International Space Station
Our team of experts have gained lots of experience in developing and coordinating experiments for the European Space Agency research experiments. At Space Applications Services we believe more people should have access to flight opportunities and with ICE Cubes we have made this possible
The ICE Cubes Facility is a capable experiment platform that offers flexibility to host many different experiments. During flight, users are able to have near real-time telemetry and telecommanding capabilities with the Experiment Cube from any location with an internet connection
Our service is particularly suited 1) for raising the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of components by in orbit demonstration, 2) for any scientific research related to microgravity or space environment and 3) for STEM education. Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) can be applied in applications of opto-electronics, micro-electronics, chemistry, biotechnology / bioengineering, tools manufacturing. Microfluidic lab-on-a-chip can be used in cell, molecular, microbiology, pharmaco-chemical research applications
Our standard service is the support to experiment design, test, launch and on-orbit operations as illustrated in the Your Roadmap page. We are available to provide you with additional assistance during payload development. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how we can help!
You are welcome to choose amongst the standard form factors as illustrated in the Overview page or you can propose a customized form factor. Of course, the feasibility of your custom form factor will depend on any overlap with other experiments
The service will launch Experiment Cubes approximately 4 months.
You may develop your payload at your own pace. Launch manifesting needs about 9 to 12 months notice.
The basis mission of an Experiment Cube will last 4 months. Longer missions can be accommodated.
First, please tell us about your experiment and research goals by writing to email@example.com or by using the form (above). Then, we will contact you to see how we can help you fly!
