Development of 50-kg-Class, Micro-Satellite ChubuSat
Microsatellites are expected to enable verification of instruments based on challenging technologies and to create new industrial applications of satellites, which will stimulate aerospace industry in Chubu (central Japan) region. The second satellite whose mission includes observations of solar neutrons is launched in February 17, 2016.
Development of integrated circuits for instrument for orbital and suborbital observations
One of common issues for orbital and suborbital observations is reducing power consumption of electronics. We have been developing multi channel and low power integrated circuit with high functionalities together with the Center for Orbital and Suborbital Observations of ISEE. Our integrated circuits have been employed by Hitomi X-ray satellite, solar flare observation rocket and balloon experiments, FOXSI and GRIPS, and ERG geospace exploration satellite. Currently, we are developing low power and high speed integrated circuits for photon sensors.
