REBUILDING THE SUPPLY CHAIN FOR SPACE

CONSTELLATION AS A SERVICE IS THE FUTURE OF SATELLITE OPERATIONS

HYPERGIANT - OFFICE OF
MACHINE INTELLIGENCE

Traditional Space Supply Chain: Satellite manufacturing today is an arduous, exacting process; the high tech nature, long component lead times and multiple vendors across the various stages introduce significant risks all along the way. Oftentimes there are multiple vendors who fill various aspects of the production process, leading to a fragmented and lengthy process.

HGS Space Supply Chain: Hypergiant Galactic Systems brings everything under one roof for their Constellation-as-a-Service business line.

Design/ Build: We have the capability to design and build CubeSats in our Houston facility in conjunction with our exclusive manufacturing partner who provides high quality, close tolerance accuracy, state-of-the-art equipment and automated machinery.

License/ Test/ Integrate: We also do all the necessary payload integration tasks including coordination, manifesting, safety, and verifications for the mission.

Launch/ Deploy: We have already completed several missions with 100% success rate. Our path to space is to ride-share up to the ISS on either a Northrup Grumman or SpaceX rocket. The payloads are installed by astronauts into our deployers attached to the exterior of the Northrup Grumman Cygnus spacecraft, which then departs and moves to a higher orbit (~480km above the Earth) before deployment.

Operate: Once in flight, our operations team in Houston utilizes industry standard flight control software combined with our own Hyper Intelligent Vehicle Enhancement (H.I.V.E.) platform. This operations platform is integrated with the satellite during the build process, shaving months off of the typical development cycle.

Replenish: Small satellites in Low Earth Orbit typically have a life span of 3-5 years. Ur CaaS model predicts the demise and deorbit of these vehicles to have replacements waiting in the wings for uninterrupted constellation coverage.

Galactic System Cube Satellites

Affordable Access to Low Earth Orbit and Beyond

With the advent of mobile phones and mass-produced miniaturized electrical components, satellite construction has become much more affordable. CubeSats are small satellites that have been used in Low Earth Orbit for approximately 15 years, and are now being used for interplanetary missions. The general design of a CubeSat is a 10 centimeter cube, which equates to (1) u. CubeSats can be designed to be a multiple of cubes, usually 2, 3, 4, 6, or 12 u depending on mission complexity and operational needs. CubeSats reduce launch and deployment costs because they are small and light by nature which means they can fit into extra cargo space of heavier payloads.

INTELLIGENT COMMAND AND CONTROL PLATFORM

REAL-TIME CONSTELLATION MANAGEMENT FROM ANYWHERE ON THE PLANET

With the growing number of space assets going to orbit, the overall operations concept for operating and controlling space borne assets must change to a more automated/intelligent operations environment that reduces the requirements for human intervention needed for daily operations.

Spacecraft and ground systems performance must be enhanced to help automate space borne and ground based operations. Controlling a constellation of several satellites cannot follow the same operating concepts that have traditionally been used in previous programs given the continuing growth and expansion of space borne assets.

Successful automation will reduce those scenarios requiring human intervention to those situations that absolutely need it. This is where Hypergiant and our partners expect to make significant enhancements to spaceflight operations in the future.

WE’RE DEMOCRATIZING ACCESS TO SPACE BY CUTTING THROUGH THE COMPLEXITY, MANAGING THE PROCESS FROM DRAWING BOARD TO ORBIT, AND REDUCING TIME AND COST.

In the past, using satellite technology was complex, expensive, and highly mission-dependent. Now, through optimization and user-experience design, we are able to reduce both complexity and cost. Whether you are looking to offer a service or demonstrate a technology, we help you develop and qualify your solution, simplify your route to orbit and bring data back to your desktop with actionable insights. Our platform performs the following:

  • Define mission parameters
  • Develop and qualify payloads
  • Book launch, allocate frequencies and contract insurance (SEOPS)
  • Test and deliver satellite(s) for launch (SEOPS)
  • Launch, deploy and operate satellites
  • Exploit space assets to provide services and data

SELECT LIST OF CLIENTS

Hypergiant is leveraging its constellation as a service infrastructure for its own AI-based constellations in addition to servicing its customers

Reconfigurable Constellation

Traditional satellite systems are expensive and cost the DoD years, jeopardizing both war and peace time space situational awareness. This is because hardware and software both need to be complete before launch and future adjustments require replacing code, a difficult and dangerous task that can leave systems compromised. Our goal is to enable the DoD to put assets in space as quickly as possible and then continuously improve them to maintain superiority.

Through advancements in software defined radios and architectures, Hypergiant has the ability to insert reconfigurable satellites on-orbit for the reprograming of payloads to meet new mission requirements for government and commercial operators.

The Reconfigurable Constellation will utilize the United States’ Air Force’s secure, hardened, and accredited Platform One system as the foundational layer for the constellation's architecture. The partnership with Platform One and Space Camp Software Factory will ensure that the Air Force has superior technical advantages in Space with the ability to update satellites’ functionality and mission profiles on the fly based on real-time emergent scenarios and information.

The Reconfigurable Constellation is a completely agile software platform for on-orbit assets. With the first of its kind implementation, the system will allow for:

  • Responding to emergent and dynamic situations in space with the ability to change sensor array functionality and communication protocols
  • Modifying Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning protocols and directives based on space-derived data
  • Updating mission critical systems using modern software development practices on secure orbital assets
  • Delivering applications rapidly and in a secure manner to space, increasing warfighter’s competitive advantage in near real time without the need to launch additional satellites
  • Allowing rapid threat prevention through continuous updating of cybersecurity software and protocols
  • Migrating legacy systems with new applications and functions to increase the longevity and usefulness of space assets

Widar Constellation

WIDAR is a Passive Multistatic RADAR (PMR) system using GPS (or GLONASS, Galileo, etc,) satellites as illuminators. Multiple (multistatic) transmitter (illuminator) sources beam radio signals to the Earth that pass through the Widar satellite and illuminate the target area. Reflected GPS radio signals from the target area are then detected (using the previously recorded illuminator signal) by a scanning (phased array) nadir pointing antennas on the Widar satellites and recorded. Widar takes advantage of advances in Software Defined Radio to significantly reduce system cost.

WIDAR utilizes Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) radio frequencies for three reasons, 1. Worldwide source of structured, well described, and stable RF illumination, 2. L-Band signals are the shortest wavelength RF signals that are not affected by weather and 3. The L-band carrier frequency (1 to 2 GHz or 15 - 30 cm wavelength) provides excellent radar resolution.

HGI’s WIDAR payload operated in the CaaS structure applies economics of scale for sensing fleet operations. We have demonstrated on-orbit operations in May 2020 and have a path for a 22-satellite constellation providing next-level data for geospatial analysis.

WIDAR Features:

  • Advanced imaging technology based on fundamentals of Intensity Correlation Interferometry (ICI) and bistatic radar
  • Uses a new type of Machine Learning to create high resolution (meter to sub-meter) volumetric maps
  • Core principle: many small, simple receivers vs. a single large, complex receiver (e.g. SAR)

WIDAR Differentiators:

  • Volumetric surface model of the earth
  • Passive imaging
  • Visibility thru cloud/foliage
  • Sub-meter resolution (resolution increases with number of passes and/or number of satellites deployed in formation/constellation)
  • Near-continuous observation of the surface with fully built-out constellation
