DCUBED Release a New Line of Actuators to Fly on LuxSpace's TRITION-X

Micro Pin Puller and Micro Release Nut, a new line of actuators by DCUBED, will fly aboard LuxSpace’s multipurpose small-satellite platform Triton-X on the upcoming Genesis mission.

After the successful on-orbit demonstrations of the Nano Pin Puller and Release Nut, DcubeD will exhibit the capabilities of their next line of actuators: Micro Pin Puller uD3PP and Release Nut uD3RN next. The actuators will allow future missions to unleash their full potential by enabling mission-critical deployables. Leveraging the experience and flight heritage of the previous products, uD3PP and uD3RN will offer fully redundant release actuation capable of higher loads, whilst fitting into the smallest spaces. The actuators will have their in-orbit demonstration aboard the Triton-X Genesis mission scheduled for launch End 2023.

With the in-orbit subsystems demonstration mission of Triton-X Genesis, LuxSpace will validate the ground-breaking capabilities of their new line of smallsat platforms for scalable and powerful microsatellites. Benefiting from the experience of Triton-1 and Triton-2, LuxSpace aims for Triton-X to be flexibly adaptable to a variety of missions and payloads.

DCUBED and LuxSpace share the goal of enabling missions to take their capabilities to the next level and look forward to demonstrating their new technologies with their upcoming mission.

Edgar Milic, CEO of LuxSpace said “LuxSpace is excited to host DCUBED onboard the Triton-X Genesis mission for the in-orbit demonstration of their new mechanisms. Breaking new ground in satellite technologies requires working with innovative and creative players. LuxSpace and DCUBED are both demonstrating to be such players.”

“At DCUBED we are constantly developing new products, to demonstrate their functionality on orbit is key to bringing them to market. We are very excited to fly with LuxSpace Triton-X Genesis mission in 2023 to demonstrate the outstanding capability of these tiny actuators and deepen our commercial partnership with LuxSpace for many more missions to come,” says Dr. Thomas Sinn, CEO of DCUBED.
